The guide includes the following sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Getting Connected to the Internet"; (3) "The Internet and Education"; (4) "Integrating the Internet into the Curriculum"; (5) "Model Internet Lesson Plans"; (6) "Electronic Mail"; (7) "Establishing an Acceptable Use Policy for Your School"; (8) "Learning about Others through the Internet"; (9) "Useful Web Sites for Teachers"; (10) "Setting up Your Own Web Site"; and (11) "Just for Fun." The appendices include a partially-annotated bibliography (47 titles), sample acceptable use policies and forms, and an index to terms defined in the book. (DLS)
