A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust

This site is comprised of field-tested case studies focusing on teacher knowledge areas/competencies as recommended by The Counsel for Exceptional Children. These cases are narratives about the universal challenges inherent in the "real world" of classrooms, teaching, and school. They have been written by trained case writers who interviewed classroom teachers from all over the U.S. as informants for the cases.
Clearinghouse for Special Education Teaching Cases

This site provides links to Internet safety resources and provides an overview of research studies conducted on cybersafety for children. Internet safety entails the guidelines and procedures implemented in public and private settings to protect the well being of Internet users.

The Wireless and Microwave (WAMI) Program was created to stimulate a multi-media approach whose end goal would be the continuing education and/or training of practicing engineers and graduate students in a specific microwave field with the various electronic tools presently available. The end product is not intended to be a lecture or an instruction manual, but an engaging learning tool and to be used as a reference source (such as an electronic book or chapter[s] of a book).

The Holistic Numerical Methods Institute brings a "holistic" coverage of numerical methods to engineering and physical science students through a "customized" approach. Holistic approach involves reviewing pre-requisites, learning the course material, and seeing how it is applied in real life. Customized approach involves simulations using a language of your choice - Mathcad, Maple, Mathematica or Matlab, and using examples from the major of your choice - Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, General, Industrial or Mechanical Engineering. The new approach was motivated by students who have taken pre-requisite materials at different times and various colleges, who are skilled in diverse mathematical package languages, and who learn best through real-life examples.
