The Internet Resource Directory for K-12 Teachers and Librarians, 94/95 Edition.
Miller, Elizabeth B.
Designed for educators who are beginning to explore the Internet, this guide designates sites of interest for K-12 education and describes how to access them. The importance and benefits of Internet access for K-12 schools are discussed in the opening chapters. Guidelines and tips for getting started are offered and scenarios of how teachers and librarians are currently using the Internet are described. The remainder of the book lists resources in the subject areas of art, music, and drama; foreign languages; language arts; math and computer sciences; science; social studies and geography; and reference. In each subject category, resources are listed by name with their current Internet addresses; if the name is not self-explanatory, a brief annotation is provided. There are also separate chapters on resources specifically for educators and for library media specialists. Resources listed include gopher sites; national, state and regional networks; electronic periodicals and books; discussion groups; archives; and organizations offering question answering services. A bibliography, a history of the Internet, and an index are also included. (JLB)
