Open Educational Resources: Getting Practical: Selected OER Texts


OER logo blocked letters

One of the biggest challenges in using an OER textbook can be locating textbooks that have immediately practical contents such as worksheets, discussion/reading questions, even already-prepared slides and teacher guides. This section is designed to help with that (see the pull-down menu!) 

In this libguide's sub-pages, you'll see links to books that contain the practical items often needed to teach an effective class. All the books linked-to on these sub-pages have some sort of discussion questions, quizzes, worksheets, etc.

Note: For organizational purposes, many pages have categorized books into sections on grammar, sources, etc. Those categories, however, do not encompass all of the book's contents. Please feel free to look around--the books on these pages undoubtedly contain more information than is listed. Using them can get you started on developing  your classes' content and structure. Good Luck!!
