Founded by teachers for teachers, BetterLesson began in 2008 with a single mission: to provide a simple way for educators to connect and share high-quality lesson plans. We were tired of seeing our colleagues’ engaging and effective lessons disappear into filing cabinets.
We needed a better solution. So, we did what teachers do—we created it ourselves.
Today, BetterLesson Plans has over 1.4 million members and offers over a million community lessons as well as thousands of lesson plans from our Master Teachers, a highly selective group of the nation’s best educators.
Our Master Teacher Project, launched in 2012 and offered in partnership with the NEA, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and The Learning Accelerator, provides comprehensive lesson plans in K-12 Math, Science, English, and Blended Learning from high-performing teachers. These plans cover not only the what, but also the how of effective curriculum.
BetterLesson Professional Learning brings the research-based instructional strategies used by Master Teachers directly into classrooms through our four services: 1:1 Coaching, Design Workshops, Learning Series, and Learning Walks. Acting as thought partners and guides, our coaches help educators continuously iterate on their practice, which leads to dramatic results in both student outcomes and teacher satisfaction.
We’ve worked with over a thousand educators in hundreds of schools, districts, and organizations, partnering to support their development of the next generation of students equipped with the skills and mindsets they need to be successful in the classroom and beyond.
To support every teacher in developing the next generation of resourceful, compassionate, and resilient learners.
BetterLesson is built on partnerships: with the teachers and leaders we coach, the district leaders with whom we design tailored professional learning solutions, and other education organizations who share our goals for students. That’s because great teaching is a partnership – between a dedicated educator and student.
We are proud of the impact our instructional resources and professional learning services have on teachers, schools, and ultimately students. Join us.
We are a dedicated and growing team of teaching practice gurus, educational opportunity devotees, and product development specialists.
