While we don't usually list advocacy organizations, this site's content about successes and challenges in rural education should be interesting reading for teachers in any settings. The focus is on schools which can do more with less, and where size becomes an opportunity rather than an obstacle. There is interesting reading here.

Teachers and parents alike will be interested in this parent's saga of their son's experience with an overwhelming advanced math class. Readers should be sure to read the editor's response, which offers a helpful commentary on when "advanced" coursework becomes excessive. The editor, a faculty member at a California University, publishes commentary on educational issues from time to time.

This Library of Congress exhibition showing historic photos of children probably has some academic application. We've included it, however, as an eloquent statement of why children are important, and why teachers teach. Try showing one of these pictures to your class and asking them to write about what the child in the picture might be thinking or doing.

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to inspire some creative writing! Allow students to explore the site on classroom computers, picking one of the images to choose as the subject of a creative writing piece. Have students write an essay, poem, editorial - depending on what's being studied, based on what they see in their image. Attach the images to their pieces, and it could make a great display in your classroom too! A fun site for a Literature or Language classroom.

Welcome to the Library of Congress' photo archive. This site offers a searchable database containing thousands of photos all almost any subject. History and social studies teachers will find this a rich resource for "what was life like then?" images, old maps, and other printed matter. Note that not all of these images are guaranteed "copyright free," but this collection was established largely for educational and research uses, so most images are freely usable in that context.

tag(s): air (163), maps (288), posters (36)

In the Classroom

Use the images on this site to create a "picture walk" in your classroom, introducing any number of the topics hosted. Select 10-15 of the more powerful and diverse images, hanging them up in different locations around your classroom. Have students rotate around the classroom every 30-45 seconds, jotting down what they observe and infer about each image until the entire class has completed the circuit. After the class is back in their seats, have a class discussion based on what they observed and what this says about historical events. A great way to get students thinking about the content in a way that's more personal and lecture-less!

This is a site for earth science teachers. It offers a collection of resources, professional development opportunities, and a huge archive of data sources for earth science activities.

This British introduction to the Web was designed for young children, and that makes it perfect for most adults' first venture into cyberspace. The site offers a step-by-step introduction, taking very small steps indeed. Technology teachers may find this one useful, and the site would also work well for a parent-and-student introduction to the Web.

This British site offers a very complete resource, and its foreign origin may offer a slightly different spin from that encountered on American sites. Teachers and parents alike should find the content useful, and there is a deep well of content submitted by students. American users should note that both the legal situation and the school rules in Britain can differ from that in the US in some significant respects.
