The Independent Piano Teacher's Studio Handbook, by Beth Gigante Klingenstein, contains several references to resources found here on the MTNA website.

Jazz Education Network

Years in the making, the Traditional Jazz Curriculum Kit, is the first-ever comprehensive curriculum for teaching New Orleans-based styles of jazz to student musicians, and includes lesson plans, teacher's guides, music arrangements, audio tracks, video masterclasses, and a classroom poster. It is available for free in CD-ROM form.

A non-profit collaboration between Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the Massachusetts Association, the Jazz History Database contains information for those teaching jazz.
