As Teachers Go Back-to-School, Education.com Announces New And Affordable Resources For Educators

Thousands of Lesson Plans Available for Preschool to Fifth Grade

SAN FRANCISCO, AUG. 12, 2015 -- Education.com, the leading online education destination for teachers, parents, and homeschoolers looking to help their kids succeed in school, announced today that it will have over 1,000 new teacher-created lesson plans available for educators.

As teachers get ready for Back-to-School, many will be spending hundreds of dollars' worth of their own money on classroom resources. According to a study conducted by The National School Supply and Equipment Association, teachers spend nearly $500 on supplies and instructional materials. With a one-year subscription to Education.com Pro, teachers can access thousands of classroom resources, educational games, and lesson plans for less than $75, saving hundreds of dollars on instructional expenses.

"One in four U.S. teachers rely on Education.com for various classroom and lesson plan related materials, and we understand the importance of providing an abundance of these resources to educators in one portal," says Rich Yang, Co-CEO of Education.com. "As we continue to release new lesson plans over the coming weeks, we feel reinvigorated as an educational brand and are looking forward to the feedback of trusted educators in all school settings."

New this school year, the lesson plan offering at Education.com includes hundreds of plans for educators of preschool through fifth grade students, in subjects including math, science, reading, social studies, and more. Developers are adding dozens of new lesson plans every week, and over 1,000 will be available in early October. Every lesson plan is made by an experienced teacher, for teachers, and provides an outline, estimated time frame, learning objectives, list of materials, preparation description, worksheets, supplemental games, ideas for differentiation, and key terms.

In addition, to help continue to combat the financial burden teachers in Title 1 schools face, Education.com is extending its nationwide effort to support teachers in underserved schools with $1 million worth of free subscriptions to Education.com Pro. This subscription also includes access to Brainzy, an award-winning early math and reading program. The no-charge access is available to any eligible teacher at a Title 1 school who registers at Education.com by October 1, 2015: education.com/give.
