Extractions: AMERICA'S HEROES AND YOU, a new curriculum for students in grades 5 through 9, focuses on the lives of 11 American heroes to foster citizenship and offer positive role models for principals, teachers and students. The curriculum highlights the achievements of heroes like Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Eleanor Roosevelt, Cesar Chavez, and describes how each of their lives exemplified one heroic quality - such as courage, determination, self reliance, problem solving or self giving. In the discussion questions and follow-up activities students are invited to recognize that quality in themselves or in someone else close to them, and to use that quality in their lives to become better citizens of their school or community. This online classroom offers appetizers and lessons for math from arithmetic to calculus or why slopes; for deductive reason (logic) and critical thinking; and for learning in general. Included here are opinions on the communication of skills and mathematics instruction. The logic appetizers are math free. Each appetizer is different. If one is not to your liking try another. Most are from three books on understanding and explaining math and reason.

The Virtual Manager right electronic tools, such as Email and remote databases. out of their homes orat customer sites also need we have a global E-mail pen-pal network called http://www.the-office.com/virtual.htm
Extractions: by William R. Pape After a lecture I gave recently, an audience member stood up and told the story of a service company that had converted to a virtual operation. The managers were looking for a way to reduce office operating costs. They had installed a corporate E-mail system, bought laptop computers for their sales and service people, and closed down and subleased their offices. The results had been disastrous. Sales had dropped, turnover had skyrocketed, and frustrations at all levels of the organization were at an all-time high. The managers had been working from the common misconception that all you need to do to become a virtual company is to supply your employees with the right electronic tools, such as E-mail and remote databases. Nothing could be further from the truth. Virtual operations come with their own set of management challenges, and managers must be skillful enough to recognize those problems and solve them. Business is, at its heart, a highly personal activity, and to date we don't have electronic tools that can fully replace the richness of face-to-face contact. Whenever you substitute electronic tools for a physical work space, you lose the synergy that can come only from daily informal contact, and you risk alienating workers from one another and from the company's goals.

Extractions: The exponential increase in size and use of the Internet has meant that it will play an increasingly large role for all people, be it personally, professionally or incidentally. These changes will undoubtedly impinge upon the language teacher, as indeed they should. EFL teachers must realize the full potential and ramifications of the Internet as a classroom resource and as a learning environment in its own right. All teachers should continuously look for more efficient and improved means of teaching their subject, so how can the Internet be utilized by EFL teachers? The Internet is basically a series of interconnected computers that can all communicate with one another. It is, in effect, an enormous wide area network (WAN) that allows vast amounts of information to be stored and accessed easily and efficiently. The infrastructure necessary for this feat is essentially provided for free, at least for the time being. Most of the material on the Internet is in English which is pretty much the Lingua Franca online. Thus, the opportunities for the classroom are enormous, as could be the changes in the way English is taught. Some people may mistakenly think that the Internet is one enormous library, but it is much more than that. It offers a level of sophistication, ease of use, width and depth of content and an interactive ability previously unknown to us. Conversely, the Internet can be overwhelming, unreliable, chaotic, slow and in no logical order.
