The OPEN partners recommend TAACCCT grantees invest up-front time finding OER to reuse rather than starting development of new educational resources right away. A significant benefit of OER is that they provide source material to build your development efforts around. No need to invest development effort in creating something that already exists. OER come in a wide variety of types. The page below will help you find openly licensed media elements to use within your courses. OER also exist as distinctly education content such as full courses, workshops, textbooks, tests and assessments. The page below will help you find openly licensed education content you can use in whole or in part. It is unlikely that you will find OER that perfectly fit your needs.

Write an A+ Essay. One of Beethoven's manuscripts...before he turned it in.

Write an A+ Essay

Question: What's the difference between an essay for second period English and a sonata by Ludwig von Beethoven? Answer: Less than you might think. Your essay is a lot like a piece of music by Beethoven...or Taylor Swift. Like a Beethoven sonata, your essay has a structure, a beginning, a middle, and an end. Like a Taylor Swift hit, your essay begins with an assertion--a thesis statement--and then justifies that assertion with supporting facts. Like music, your essay is meant to be heard.
