This site has a lot of research available for viewing. The research is detailed and in plain text. There is also a tutorial of the human body that better explains the functions of organs and how they work together. A great research tool for biology students! Nice animation, including a guided tour of the human body with key points outlined. From Washington University Medical School.

This site provides video and written coverage of the 1960 Presidential Debates.

tag(s): debate (41), presidents (131)

In the Classroom

If teaching about the historic 1960 television debates, use the videos and transcripts to provide students with something more tangible than the summary in their textbook. Click on the debate history section of the site, selecting the year 1960. There are multiple transcripts and videos that can easily be printed or viewed on the interactive whiteboard. To show the impact of technology, have students listen to the debate before watching - and also select a winner. After, have students repeat the activity; this time through watching the video. Have a class discussion on how seeing the candidates affected their opinions, and whether a similar effect occurred in 1960. Great for a US government classroom!

Find resources related to John F Kennedy: facts, links to several speeches, and a multimedia gallery. One interesting part of this site is the use of word clouds as part of the page with the links to speeches. Each speech includes a published transcript of the text of the speech along with a word cloud emphasizing the most frequently used words. This is part of a larger collection of all the United States presidents but provides a nice starting point for important events and information related to our 35th president.

tag(s): 1960s (30), kennedy (27), presidents (131)
