Edutopia, the George Lucas Educational Foundation, is an excellent resource for educators. Their site has a huge variety of resources, tips, and research on education and is accessible for free. They are a big proponent of Project Based Learning and also have a lot of resources on best practices in education.
They have a page with Free Classroom Guides and Downloads for 2011 that contains excellent guides in PDF format. There are also additional, related resources linked from this page.
I posted about this page last June. Since then, they have added some new resources.
The new guides are:
