The best resources I have just recently discovered are: The Effective Guides to Literacy and Numeracy Instruction from The Government of Ontario. These guides combine many different teaching resources and ideas into easy to read documents. The best practices outlined in these documents are not just for Ontario teachers. They can be used by all teachers looking for the best practices to use in their classrooms. The bonus - these guides are FREE!

Although, the titles suggest that these guides are only suitable for Grades 4-6 the strategies and lessons are key for all grades, and the lessons can be adapted to suit older grades.
Last year my grade team used Volume 7 Media Literacy to guide our TLCP (Teaching Learning Critical Pathway). It provided us with great graphic organizers, lesson plans and Big Ideas for us to use while planning and teaching.
