Favorite Web Resources

Here is a place to add your favorite links that don't necessarily fall into any of the other categories.

http://del.icio.us/
Ever get frustrated because you hear about so many great websites but can't keep track of them? Or you have a "favorities" list a mile long? Or you need something from your favorites list, but you're on a different computer? Well, here is the solution. This very cool website easily helps you organize and tag all your weblinks- then they're stored on the Internet so you always have access to them. And you can sort them by your key words so you can always find what you want. And you can add a del.icio.us button to your toolbar so that whenever you find a good website you can automatically add it to your list without opening up the site. And it's free. Way cool. JHutchin

This portal has links to study strategies at colleges around the world. The second part of the site has study and writing strategies organized by discipline areas. So howtostudy biology also includes how to write a lab report. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts, hints and tips by writing reviews. They can remain anonymous or be famous. These reviews are juried and edited as needed before being posted. To see what students are saying, click on the READ icon next to any link. Lucy MacDonald

Note: I've sent my DevEd Reading students to do "field trips" -- Lucy's idea -- to different places on the howtostudy site and they think it's awesome! JHutchin
