lesson plans + resources

sooooooo this year is my first year teaching and i’m teaching freshman and sophomore english as well as either junior or eighth grade english. i’m obviously getting some resources from my district and also have access to CSCOPE, but i was wondering where else you guys look for resources to supplement my teaching.

i had a professor tell me not to try to reinvent the wheel, because everything i’m going to teach has been taught before. where’s the best place to look? just googling things like “high school english” gets overwhelming. so…advice? links?
