Site closing

This site has been active since 1997. It was originally set up to serve and support my students through course related links and original materials. However, it soon became clear that postings and resources were useful to others as well.  Usage has been readily granted to teaching professionals and students around the world free with a clear promise to pay it forward with a simple act of random kindness.  I'd like to say thank you to users honoring the intent of that requirement. This site will be slowly phased out in 2014.

The Curriculum Planning Process



The second principle of magic...things which have once been in contact with each other continue to act on each other at a distance after the physical contact has been severed.                                                                          Sir James Frazer
