Best picks for general browsing for Educators:

The following links have broad appeal for educators and those looking for resources in the areas like grants, standards, rubrics, lesson banks, as well as unusual general sites for educators and cyber buildings devoted to numerous educational topics. 

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.  Thanks!

Have fun browsing and many blessings!  Leslie
