one of the newer concepts in education, brain-based education.

If you try to reach a site that has been
hyperlinked and get
an error message or a "page not found message," try again later. If the
site still fails to appear after repeated tries, please contact me and
let me know via my e-mail link so that I can remove it from my
list. I know how terribly frustrating it is to click on a hyperlink and
get a "page not found" message. Also, if you find an interesting or
informative site related to my topic headings -- one not already
part of my lists, please let me know the address so I can add it.
