NextLesson provides teachers with projects, lessons, and interactive curriculum designed to make learning more fun and engaging. With a focus on 21st Century skills and Common Core-aligned materials, NextLesson offers educators curriculum content that focuses on real world problems and applications to enhance the classroom experience.
NextLesson offers three core products for grades K-12 in Math, ELA, Social Studies, and Science. Teachers can direct students to the NextLesson website inside or outside the classroom to use “Rank & Reason” and “Performance Tasks” products. These two tools test student’s knowledge of concepts and offer real world applications of subject matter. The “Projects” tool provides teachers with instructional videos and lesson plans to use for more hands-on learning experiences in the classroom.

NextLesson offers three subscription levels for users. Anyone can sign up for a free “Basic” account for access to free resources on the website. The “By Grade” subscription costs $40 per teacher per year and gives teachers access to all products relevant to their specific grade level. The “Complete” subscription costs $200 per teacher per year and offers teachers full access to all NextLesson products.
