Here is a fascinating model of using the Internet to distribute instructional resources. Developed by the province of Alberta, Canada, this site provides a set of interactive lessons that are very well designed both for use in direct instruction and independent practice for grade levels. The interactive math lessons are particularly interesting. (For example, check out "Spy Guys" in the 6th grade mathematics section.) Teachers can utilize the animated programs to directly teach their students, then allow them to access the multiple opportunities for practice provided by each activity. Guest login is available, as are subscriptions.
