Welcome to the Chicago Foundation for Education’s online database of grant-winning lesson units and teaching strategies. We have designed this database to allow our grant winners an opportunity to share their great ideas, and for other teachers to use them in their classroom.

How to search for lesson plans:
  • Use the 2 search criteria in the heading above (subject area and grade level) to restrict your search
  • Use control or apple to highlight multiple search criteria
  • Hit “GO” to retrieve lessons

With this database you can:

  • Search for creative instructional units and strategies to apply in your classroom
  • Learn research-proven teaching strategies that will increase student learning
  • E-mail lesson plans to a friend
  • Sign up to receive e-mail updates when new lessons are added or for notification of CFE grant application deadlines
