What is the Great Teaching Ideas Program?
The Great Teaching Ideas program is a free resource for Missouri Teachers providing useful lesson plans and teaching activities. Missouri teachers submit their own units and lessons to SuccessLink via an online submission form. These lessons are then reviewed by curriculum specialist. Approved lessons are posted on the SuccessLink Web site for all teachers to freely print and use with their own curriculum. Lessons are aligned to the Missouri Show Me Standards as well as the new Missouri Grade Level Expectations, content ranges from kindergarten through twelfth grade in all subjects. The SuccessLink Web site has a database of over 2000 lessons. Three incentive programs encourage submission of lessons. These are graduate credit courses, an approved Career Ladder activity and a monthly cash award program.
