TIM'S TAKE on TEACHINGCHANNEL.ORG

I recommend that all of you sign up for this website. After you sign up you can pick your grade level and topics you are interested in. Emails with videos about those topics will show up in your inbox. It can be very hard to make time to physically go see other teachers teach, but with this site you can watch teachers anytime.

For example, if I was struggling with teaching fractions, I would look up some lessons on fractions and watch the videos to get some great ideas.
