Educational Resources

The following links are all about education. I've collected them while doing a distant education course at McGill. I relied on the Internet for my research as I lived in an isolated village. These sites are up-to-date (Aug 8, 2001), and make for some interesting reading... if only we had more time, and had solid eyes!
I've been asked about New Zealand sites for teachers, and feel it important that we link these. Here are some, but if you find more, please let
me know.

Enriching Compensatory Education for the Disadvantages Students While some traditional methods of dealing with low achievers have been to separate them and stress basic skill education at a slower learning rate, this article examines how such treatments only lower learning expectations and label such students as inferior. Nor does it suggest that pullout activities are the answer; students pulled for remedial reading may altogether miss science or other core curriculum lessons. Read the sound advice offered in this excellent article for achieving a balanced and worthy education for disadvantaged students.
