K-12 Resources on the Internet: An Instructional Guide. Internet Workshop Series, Number 5.
This guide is written for the K-12 teacher or librarian who cannot afford the time or expenses to attend workshops or does not have the patience to read through densely worded treatises about the Internet.

The guide: shows how to use the Internet tools (world wide web, email, gopher, and more) to find K-12 projects, reference sources, school assignments, strictly-for-fun stuff, current information, pen-pals worldwide, team projects with other students around the world, special education resources, story-hour sites, and more; explains the Internet vocabulary in understandable terms; offers a variety of strategies for teaching students, their parents, and colleagues about the Internet; tells where to find the Internet resources to keep up professionally; and helps with administrative and policy issues. Sample acceptable use policies are provided for administrators. (MAS)
