|An Educational Web Site Concerning Homelessness and How to Solve
This web site addresses the national problem of homelessness and gives
teachers a way of bring social consciousness to their students and showing
them that they too, can make a difference. This allows teacher to
incorporate homelessness into their classroom while helping the problem
with the ways illustrated on the web site.
|Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust
This is an excellent web site. You can find information
about the holocaust from several sources (ie. books, articles, museums,
plays, etc.). Information is provided on educational software, websites,
and professional development. This is a very thorough site in that
it also provides an informative timeline with relevant links to each event/date,
describes the people involved (victims, rescuers, resisters, etc.), and
lists terms (and definitions) associated with the Holocaust. GO SEE
|Real Solutions for Families and Communities
Children donít live in vacuums, they live in families. Family
life can often affect a childís life in positive or negative ways.
As teachers we have to work with the whole child, which can encompass the
family too. This site is a great site for educators and parents to
find resources and help on family issues, in efforts to help students and
families. This site has book recommendations on family issues, community
resources, news for families, professionalsí advise on topics that affect
the family, and services available from the Griffen and Wong Institute
(the sponsors of this site).
|N.A.B.E. (National Association of Bilingual Education)
This is a great site to find resources for bilingual education and be
up to date on the latest issues concerning bilingual education in our nation.
It includes a menu on the U.S. legislations concerning bilingual education
as well as a menu on the recent news articles also associated with this.
Many educators my not feel terribly concerned with this issue but the articles
are a way to orient yourself with the subject if not aid you as a bilingual
educator. Personally, I feel this site could prove quite useful in
my future, (as I am a Spanish and Education major) not only keeping me
up to date on the latest legislation, but also keeping me in touch with
others who feel this subject is important.
|Partnership for Family Involvement in Education
This website encourages America's schools to help increase the involvement
of parents. It gives ideas of programs to start within a community.
It is very beneficial for teachers and parents of their students.
|Special Education Resources on the Internet
Special Education Resources on the Internet (SERI) is a collection of
Internet accessible information resources of interest to those involved
in the fields related to Special Education.
