The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) is excited to announce TeachBC, their new website and online database to share teaching resources. It is now available online at


TeachBC is an online resource of teaching materials, lessons, and research relevant to the K‒12 BC curriculum. Through the generosity of BC public school teachers, the website is public and open to everyone. Teachers and organizations can share their teaching resources or educational research by registering and uploading their materials or providing links. Anyone can browse and download the resources for classroom or professional use. Browsing is easy: users can search by subject, grade level, resource type, title, description, language, and more.

TeachBC uses a Creative Commons license; this means the materials are not copyrighted in the traditional sense. They will be freely available to use in classrooms, but not for profit. The database will be open to searching and downloading of resources, and will be a source of high-quality BC-based research.

Teachers and prospective teachers are encouraged to help us build this resource by uploading your teaching materials, lessons, and research. It is an easy process:

  1. Go to “Share your resources”
  2. Register with your name and email
  3. Start sharing!

This will grow to be a valuable resource for BC teachers, built by BC teachers. Please share this news with your colleagues and encourage them to share their teaching resources.
