The Collaborative Lesson Archive of the University of Illinois is intended to be "a forum for the creation, distribution, and archival of education curricula for all grade levels and subject areas." The main page contains links to lessons organized by individual grade levels from kindergarten to beyond the twelfth grade. Once chosen, users are presented with a list of subjects including geography, science, and math, among others, which then contain various lessons. The sixth grade science section, for example, holds links to more than fifty lessons, their authors, and their dates of submission. Teachers can search the entire archive of resources by various criteria as well as submit their own lesson, culminating in a Web site that will surely be found helpful by educators everywhere. The only caveat is that, as is stated on the welcome page, the "quantity and quality of the content is entirely dependent on the Internet community... since we only provide the framework and the storage area, the rest is up to you."
