ALEX is a project of the Alabama Department of Education. It is a collection of lesson plans, web links, and interactive activities for teachers, students, and parents to access and use.
The website is wonderful. It allows you to look up lesson plans by subject and grade level. It even allows you to search for lesson plans by author, title, or school. Plus, you have to option to create your own lesson plan. The web resources are also organized by subject. The offer many different links to websites that can be used to supplement learning. On top of that, the site has a collection of podcasts that span from Art, to Math, to Technology Education.
I will definitely use ALEX when I begin teaching. It offers so many different options and it's easy to access for everyone. It'll allow parents the opportunity to keep up with what their children are doing.
