ALEX - Where it all begins.

The Alabama Learning Exchange (ALEX) is absolutely amazing. I wish it had been available years ago when I was first in education. The opportunities for teachers, administrators, as well as students to have access to such a wealth of information is invaluable. Content standards for courses of study are presented by subject and grade level. And lessons plans, again presented by subject and/or grade level, can be created, researched and even submitted for approval. Professional development learning is also provided to those who wish to take advantage of the resources at their fingertips.

The web site ( is easy to maneuver and is divided into eight major categories including but not limited to a personal workspace to actually prepare lesson plans and keep close at hand other professional websites in an organized manner. It must be noted that once you create an account, it has to be accessed at least once during a six month period or it will be closed. Teachers, especially new graduates, should put this at the top of their favorite's list. Just click on this link ALEX.

  1. ALEX is just one of thousands of sites that are chock full of resources for teachers. Just wait until we look at some of them. And that does not include the most important resources of all - other teachers throughout the world. When you become part of that community you will be even more completely supplied with ideas, assistance and mutual support!
