EDSITEment is a website that offers lesson plans and online resources in the subject areas of literature and language arts, foreign languages, art and culture, and history and social studies. It's a collection of content from all over the Web, but all the links have been vetted for quality by the National Endowment for the Humanities, and they've connected Common Core standards to everything on the site.

You can search content by type, subject area, or state standard, or you can browse the front page to see features like "How to do a close reading of the Gettsyburg Address" and a calendar of notable historical and cultural events, like the 1942 premiere of Casablanca.
