My Virtual Reference Desk is an incredibly interesting site with many, many useful links. I've personally checked out Quick Reference/Research and My Weather Sites links, each looks quite thorough. The Quick Reference link may prove to be an invaluable tool for any student looking to write a research paper.

Be sure to checkout the PBS U.S. Olympic Cyber School site. This exciting, educational web site has been produced by a collaboration involving Thirteen/WNET (the NY PBS affiliate), PBS, and IBM. The site uses the recent Nagano Games and the power of the Internet to teach middle school math, science, social studies, and history. For example, the new Olympic sport of snowboarding forms the basis of a series of interactive lessons on friction and aerodynamics; educational challenges on ice skating focus on the concepts of geometry and center of gravity; while a group of downhill skiing learning activities center on diet, training, and timing. (Thanks to the WNET School Bulletin for the summary of this site.)

Another PBS site, one of great value to all educators enables you to assess the quality and value of a website. It is called "Beyond Searching Smart: Assessing and Evaluating Web Sites." According to the WNET School Bulletin, once you collect a group of sites that appear to be relevant to your teaching goals, you still need to assess the sites and decide whether they support your curriculum. With so much information online, how does an educator begin the process of evaluation? This month's Primer selection features "What's 'Good' on the Web?" -- a guide to assessing and evaluating Web sites. The selection walks you through grading the web, two case studies, and applying evaluation criteria. An evaluation form is included that helps in determining what sites are "good," have reliable content, make appropriate use of the technology, and offer something beyond traditional resources.
