Internet websites have opened opportunities for teachers and students alike. This work contains a comprehensive list of informative websites providing a variety of information on each of the 50 states.
The guide lists sites for each individual state from Alabama to Wyoming, plus the District of Columbia. Each state averages 50 websites, arranged alphabetically by sponsor, that provide information of particular use to teachers, students and librarians. An appendix lists an additional 50 websites, useful for all states, which brings this work to a total of 2,550 entries. Taken together, the topics covered by these websites give a complete picture of life in a particular state. Topics include (but are not limited to) history, natural resources, art, science and education. Official governmental sites for each state are also included.
Each entry offers a concise description of site parameters geared to the needs of educators. Special features of each website are noted and the authors suggest curriculum areas such as language arts, math, government, library media and environmental studies in which the site's information will be especially useful.
