Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
A navigation tool for steering students to excellent scientific resources available on the Internet. The sites included are principally primary documents and other sites that provide reliable data. The purpose of the approach is to give a guided search, aimed at avoiding haphazard surfing. The chapters are arranged chronologically, beginning with Hippocrates and Roger Bacon and continue to writings and speeches from the 21st century. Each lesson begins with a URL and a site summary. A series of tasks follows that would serve as a starting point for science teachers to expand upon, and are designed to trigger discussion and analytical thinking and writing. In addition, a list of related sites to be used in some of the tasks or to broaden an understanding of the topic is included. The 10 appendixes offer such helpful topics as subject guides to Web sites, career data, information available in journals and other periodicals, and Web guides to standards. They alone are very useful, but paired with the lessons, this book becomes a valuable teaching tool.
