Welcome to Algebra 1 Teachers

This website was created by teachers for teachers to help teachers implement the Common Core State Standards into their classrooms with great algebra lesson plans but without losing their minds. (There is also Geometry Teachers and Algebra 2 Teachers websites for you!)

Common Core Algebra Lesson Plans

Algebra 1 Units

You will find every standard for Algebra 1 sorted into Units. These units were established by the Dana Center and I found them to be the best organization for the Common Core when I started this adventure almost 2 years ago. But I was still overwhelmed with the amount of content.

So I began breaking each unit into weeks and found the best Algebra lesson plans I could find into each week. This felt much better to me and I began testing this in my classroom. It was working quite well with some amazing results!

There are downloads available for many of the lessons provided. If you have a free download you would like to share with the community, please use the link here to submit it for approval.

Algebra Assessments

I also began using Dan Meyers’ assessment strategy. I created weekly quizzes based on his philosophy. My students were thriving. (Please subscribe to get your copy of the Unit 1 Assessments. I do not want them in the hands of my students, or yours.)
