The University of Colorado has a series of great Java applets at http://phet.colorado.edu/. As a teacher with minimal lab equipment, these have been great for demos and virtual labs.

"Physics education research: Resources for middle school science teachers"

http://arxiv.org/abs/0903.3183

There's a wealth of resources here, in various forms. And despite the title, I think it is quite useful for almost all level of pre-college education.

I and my collaborators are preparing movie clips for use in the physics classroom. These clips have activities and lesson plans at this website:

http://www.nicholls.edu/phsc/movies/

You can download the clips from the website, or, if you're interested in getting the DVD, just enter your e-mail on the front page of the above site.

Thanks,
Chad
