Microsoft Lesson Connection is a set of tools designed to help teachers nationwide search for lesson plans matching their local and state curriculum standards. Created by Microsoft Corp. in collaboration with Tudor Publishing Company and Classroom Connect, Lesson Connection helps search through tens of thousands of online lesson plans. Teachers can embed search criteria based on Gateway to Educational Materials standard subjects and topic keywords in their own Web-based curriculum standard documents. When a teacher clicks on a hyperlink inserted in the document, Microsoft Site Server-based technology searches through lesson plans indexed from multiple sites on the Internet.
