Welcome to WoodshopTeachers.Org.
My website is ALWAYS under construction so please bear with me as the site
continues to grow.....and please take a few seconds to read my mission below...
When I started teaching high school Woodworking in 2003 (at age 52) I found that there were virtually no online woodworking teacher resources that truly addressed the needs of the students who walked into my classroom. It seemed that everything was written for the (typical 40-50 something year old) hobbyist woodworker who read at a college level and actually understood and cared about grain direction.
I reached out to everyone I could via the internet and found that the teachers who could best help me were reluctant (putting it mildly) to give up any of their resources.
My mission is to provide a virtual file cabinet where Woodworking teachers at all grade levels, all levels of experience and all disciplines can freely access the resources within to aid their classroom instruction.
I not only hope that teachers will use the free resources that are provided here but that they will feel compelled to share some of the resources that they are successfully using in their classrooms.
If you have a lesson plan, please share it.
If you have some great images to illustrate your lesson, please share them.
If you have a quiz for lesson assessment, please share it.
If you have a favorite link or two, please share them.
My only request is that you submit resources that will be useful to teachers in the classroom.
I could flood this site with general woodworking links but I wish to keep it fairly easy to navigate and relevant to the specific needs of my fellow woodworking teachers.This website depends upon you...
( Well........Okay.......Not actually.......I will continue to add relevant content whether you respond or choose not to...But the website will be FAR better for your efforts!)
This website is a non-commercial venture and will not accept advertising support from anyone. (Please understand that some links will direct you to commercial pages with advertising.)If you have any suggestions or any resources to share.....please do so here.
All the best,
Learning By Doing
Please address any website concerns here.
