TeachingBooks

TeachingBooks http://www.teachingbooks.net/ has a lot of free materials. Type in the title of the book and up pops book resources which may include: book guides/lesson plans, related booklists, vocabulary, book annotations/trailers, author interview or blog, text complexity. The variety of resources depends on the book. When I typed in Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, there were 12 lesson plans along with all of the above resources!
