Extractions: If you have access to the Internet, but you don't have Internet access in your classroom or a lab you can use at times, don't give up. There are still ways to use the Internet: Do you have a technology person or a technology support department? If so, ask them if they can project a computer screen. If you have one computer with Internet access, a projector can put the computer screen up on a big screen that the whole class can see. Send students to the library, computer labs, or their home computers to do research (you can make the Internet one of many resources that your students may use). Use the Internet for research on a topic. Searching on the Internet can be easier than looking through indices, card files, or catalogs in a library. Use the lessons you find on the Internet. Most media sites (tv, film, magazines, newspapers) have lesson plans, teacher resources, and activities. Most of these are not dependent on Internet access.

You've just found out that you're going to have a student with Asperger Syndrome (AS) in class this year. You're in for an interesting year. And that's not coded language for "brace yourself." It's a real-life perspective that teaching a child with AS often gives you as many opportunities as challenges. First, the nuts and bolts stuff. Asperger Syndrome is a neurobiological disorder on the higher functioning end of the autism spectrum. It's an increasingly common diagnosis and many kids with AS are in regular school classes. That's really the bottom line for you: finding ways to make the year a good experience for every child in the room, including the one with AS and, of course, for you. You can't discount your needs in the process. So let's make them a priority, too. First, you may want to learn a bit more about Asperger Syndrome. One of the most user-friendly sources is the

Storytellers on Tour Have students practice retelling folktales in their classroom.

The next day the story is completed and a new one begun and left open-ended at an exciting moment. Stories could be selected from the Tales of the Arabian Nights and told in this fashion, as in the style of Shahrazad, its great storyteller. According to legend, she told stories in this way to a sultan for 1001 nights, which is why the stories of the Arabian Nights is also called "1001 Nights."

Looking at the painting for inspiration, the class constructs the first few sentences of a tale through group discussion and suggestion.

All the classes then gather to hear the result of their group effort read out loud and to see the painting, that inspired the story.

Extractions: At the Park T he thought of a class field trip, especially in an outdoor setting; can cause jitters in even the most experienced teacher. The purpose of this guide is to provide lots of ideas for activities to keep students organized, on task, and excited about learning in Virginia's estuarine parks. The tips in this section will help to make the trip an outstanding learning experience. Some great advice comes from John Falk (formerly Associate Director of Education at the Smithsonian Institution's Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies), who taught thousands of students who came to the Center for school field trips. He and his staff conducted a systematic study of the children's behavior and the following are some excerpts from an article written about those observations: Suppose you have taught your dog some new tricks ... You take him over to your friend's house (where he has never been) and ... your dog performs poorly. In fact, all he does is sniff around the corners of the room. Frustrated, you give up and let him sniff.
