The School Administrator's Handbook of Internet Sites. Second Edition.
DeAngelis, James, Ed.; Licitra, Annette, Ed.
Although the Internet contains a wealth of education-related information, cutting through the teacher-, student-, and parent-focused sites to find administrative management tools can be difficult. To help in this effort, strategies for helping administrators find relevant Internet resources are presented in this guide. The text provides a brief explanation of the Internet's evolution and descriptions of various Internet applications, including e-mail, mailing lists, newsgroups, and the World Wide Web. It also contains descriptions of more than 380 Internet sites. Each description includes an Internet "address" and login or subscription instructions, where applicable. For ease of use, sites have been alphabetized and classified into the following categories: curriculum, government, grants/funding, health/safety, professional development, research, special education, student aid/college prep, school administrator/improvement, technology, and vocational and adult education. Some sites that may be of particular interest include a charter-school mailing list, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education gopher and web sites, and the National Association of Secondary School Principals' Web site. Appendices list sites providing education-related resources and search engines. A glossary and an index to sites by alphabetical order are also provided. (RJM)
