Highlights for High Schools

MIT compiled all their open courseware material that is appropriate for use by high school teachers of college-bound students at this site. For teachers the goal is to make it easy for you to find resources you can use to inspire your students. MIT OpenCourseware has selected a range of materials to help you: (1) Show science demonstrations by MIT faculty in your classroom. (2) Provide alternate explanations to reinforce key concepts. (3) Guide students to additional homework problems and exam examples. (4) Add to your knowledge. You can use this site to help your students: Understand concepts by watching video demonstrations or study for AP exams. Furthermore they can sample the kind of work they'll be doing in college.

"I love that this is an easy to use site that fosters professional collaboration and improvement of teaching and learning while providing tools for educators in a one stop place. The templates are easy to use. I've been using them lately for workshops and online courses as well as for creating and updating an educator web resource list. Updating on the fly is so easy. My sites look professional and are easy to navigate. In the past I've used them to help teachers with project planning, and would love to do that again.

Barbara is extremely responsive to my needs when I've made requests. This personal touch is extremely awesome!"
