Michigan eLibrary my main focus has been the MeL Databases and MeL Cat. Today M. O. R. E. , Michigan Online Resources for Educators, caught my eye.
This is truly a goldmine of tools to facilitate classroom instruction free for the taking. Their stated goal of Putting More Tech In TEaCHing is well met.

By registering you can click on the Tools tab and use the Resource Locker, a place to store all your "finds", the Lesson Plan Builder, a detailed template for designing, saving and printing lessons, and the Collaboration Center. To use the Collaboration Center you need to register to be a member of edWeb which is a professional social networking site for the education community.
