To exemplify how easy it is to use the Internet to supplement the daily curriculum, there are four general curricular areas, covering K–College, that walk you through locating resources, integrating the Internet, and creating Web sites or research reports. There's even a section that highlights how useful the Internet is for cooperative learning applications. To get you started, there a dozen lesson plans illustrating how many teachers are already taking advantage of the Internet. Social Studies in the Cyberage shows you how to turn the Internet into the ultimate teacher resource.
