Teacher Resources

Educators are one of Arizona’s most valuable resources.

As noted on the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) General Overview of the 2010 Arizona English Language Arts and Mathematics Standards, "teachers today must prepare students for a world of possibilities that may not currently exist. The workforce of tomorrow must be flexible, motivated, and be able to draw from a deep and vast skill set. The ability to effectively communicate, collaborate, and adapt to situations will be critical to ensuring competition in a global market." 

One Stop Education

To meet the demand for engaging, effective education, The Arizona Experience has compiled a variety of web-based resources for use in the classroom and at home. Use these pages to find materials and activities that supplement classroom lessons and online education with hands-on experiments, observations, and field trips that help students gain understanding of the changing world around them. There are links to online photo galleries, web applications, podcasts, and other multimedia materials.
