The ODE's ELA website contains resources and curriculum information.
Read closely, think critically, be worldly.  NewsELA provides news articles that can be adjusted to each students individual lexile level.  This website provides a much needed tool to meet the demands of the Common Core and individual student needs.
A virtual K-12 library, transforms teaching and learning by connecting educational resources with the power of information technology. This is one of the best places for students to start when researching.
Use these amazing videos to get students thinking, connecting to their own lives, and developing their own questions about topics related or indirectly related to your content.  You can guarantee these videos will engage students and get them talking about academic content.
Educore is one of my favorite common core resources.  Their videos explaining the common core shift are some of the best, but even better are their pre made math and literacy lessons.  These lessons are some of the best common core aligned ELA lessons. 
Common Core resource for outstanding non-fiction books and authors.
SAS has some of the most polished and put together lessons and activities that I have seen on a FREE site. They have interactive math tools, simulations, and incredible inquiry based lessons infused with loads of literacy skills. Material currently is only for grades 6-12; math, ELA, science, social studies, and Spanish.

This is the go to site for primary documents, and engaging, common core aligned social studies lessons. ELA teachers this will be a very helpful site as you will begin to use more information texts in your curriculum.

In case you haven’t seen Sal Khan on TV every other night here is the scoop. It’s the website that started it all. Learn anything (school related) anytime, anywhere. CK12, learnzillion, braingenie, mentormob, etc. were all started with Khanacademy as their influence.

Similar to Khan Academy, but with less content. Good news is that what they do have is more suited to teacher use in the classroom. Their premade slide show (powerpoint) lessons are great and allow teachers to customize. Common Core aligned.
