Teaching Resources are valuable for all educators, homeschoolers, parents and even students. I subscribe to a teaching theory which aligns with the Chinese adage:
Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
Resources are valuable as they provide important methods and opportunities for students to obtain new information, integrate knowledge into prior existing scaffolding as well promoting lifelong learning characteristics to increase problem solving skills.
