*Some lessons include more than 1 day/periods of material, and are counted as such. See lesson links for clear explanations.
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentations include links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
