I just completed my student teaching in Newark New Jersey. Creating unit plans became a breeze once I joined Lesson Planet. There was a plethora of resources for every CCSS. Thank you. I had veteran teachers asking me where did I get my resources. I am now teaching at my cooperative school. Yeah!!!!!!!!!
