Exeter Chess Club lessons
The Exeter Chess Club offers a lot of free chess lessons at their site. The index of Coaching handouts and Blog posts, sorted by Class, is a good place to start. There is also a special index page for juniors.
The handouts used in the coaching sessions can be retrieved by means of these tables. All this useful chess material is grouped by level (A-D, where A are better players and G is for everyone) and a topic (Openings, Tactics, Endgames...). The tables show the level across the top and the topic down the side.
The Generic Thought Process of Chess
The principles of looking for checks, captures, and threats are described very well by Dan Heisman in A Generic Thought Process on Chess Cafe.
This document as well as the other documents from the archives of Chess Cafe are very useful sources of information for chess teachers.
The Blue Book of Chess
The Blue Book of Chess Teaching is one of the free chess books made available by Project Gutenberg. It teaches the Rudiments of the Game, and gives an analysis of all the Recognized Openings.
The book os based on Staunton's "Chess Player's Handbook;" but other standard books have been drawn upon to fit it to be a manual for the beginner of to-day.
It can be downloaded here.
By playing over carefully the illustrative games, the learner will also see, at each opening, the variations made by experienced players in accordance with circumstances. As great a variety of actually played games has been given as was possible in a work of such limited scope. To this end the games of the distinguished players of different nations have been introduced, classified according to the different openings; and thus the reader will find the combined genius and skill of the old heroes like Philidor, Morphy, Staunton, Anderssen, Harrwitz, Evans, Montgomery and Cochrane, together with such recent masters as Lasker, Steinitz, Schlechter, Pillsbury, Marshall, Tarrasch, Janowsky, Tchigorin, and many other players of world-wide celebrity.

It seems that Chess Publishing has found a new method for the publishing of chess games on all kid of blogsites (including blogspot/blogger) without the use (and dependency) on other sites. The method is based on Palview. If you are interested in the publishing of chess games on your own blog you may find this very interesting. This is the link to the first example game.
Chess Teaching Manual
One of the most interesting books about how to teach chess is the manual written by International Master Tom O'Donnell and produced by the Chess Federation of Canada.
The purpose of this manual, that can be downloaded here, is to encourage the playing of chess by young people. It is not necessary for the teacher using this manual to be a good chess player. He even doesn't have to be a chess player at all.
The manual is mainly intended to learn chess to beginners, but also contains information about running a chess tournament.
