MIAMI (AP) - A new venture between one of the nation's largest teacher unions and a United Kingdom-based education company will allow U.S. teachers to share and review each other's lessons online.

The American Federation of Teachers and TSL Education plan to announce the creation of Share My Lesson on Tuesday.

The website is expected to contain more than 100,000 user-generated materials, including lesson plans and presentations that can be used in class.

Teachers can comment on how they used the lessons in class and share recommendations.

TSL Education is the parent company of TES Connect, which operates a similar portal for nearly 2 million members from 197 countries.

Share My Lesson is expected to be available for teachers by the start of next school year.
