The Best Web Sites for Teachers.
Sharp, Vicki F.; Levine, Martin G.; Sharp, Richard M.
This book identifies more than 650 Internet and World Wide Web sites across the K-12 curriculum that can benefit teachers who may not have time to carry out lengthy searches themselves. The Web sites in this book are organized alphabetically by the following K-12 subject areas: art, bilingual education, drama, ESL, foreign language, health education and physical education, journalism, language arts, math, music, science, social studies, special education, and vocational and technical education. Within each subject area, the sites are organized into at least one of three categories: lesson plans, other resources, and museums and exhibits. The sites described may include a wide range of materials--lesson plans and pictures that can be printed out, online multimedia presentations for students; interactive games; weekly brain teasers; searchable activities; databases for teachers; contests; pen pal opportunities; forms; downloadable graphics; videos; and other resources that can enrich the K-12 curriculum. Appendix 1 describes Web sites for newsgroups, that allow teachers to read and post messages, as well as listservs through which teachers can subscribe to electronic newsletters. Appendix 2 lists Web sites for information on search tools and Appendix 3 provides some sample forms for evaluating recommended and new Web sites. (AEF)
