The Lesson Plan Page
Sponsored by a number of organizations, this site includes thousands of lesson plans for K-12 teachers. Searches can be narrowed by subject and grade level; actual lesson plans are prepared by University students and faculty, and are also submitted by teachers who use this resource.

MIT OpenCourseWare
Free and open access to course descriptions, reading lists, assignments, and other Web-based supporting materials for courses in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences at MIT. Intended "for educators, students, and self-learners around the world." Users should note the disclaimers on the main page: "Is not a degree-granting or certificate-granting activity" and "Does not provide access to MIT faculty."

Learning Page Lesson Plans (American Memory Project, Library of Congress)
The learning page helps educators use the American Memory web site to teach about United States history and culture. It provides tips and tricks for using the American Memory collections, as well as activities, and lessons that provide context for their use. American Memory is a collection of over seven million digitized items that reflect the collective American memory, its history and culture. Primarily from the collections of the Library of Congress, it includes items in many formats such as films, manuscripts, rare documents, maps, photographs, and audio recordings.
