Topics in Medieval Japanese History
This book differs from many other textbooks in that it contains relatively less political, institutional and military history and relatively more social and cultural history than is typically the case. Within the cultural history of medieval Japan, Buddhism is of the utmost importance. This book therefore contains an introduction to the origin and major teachings of Buddhism. Subsequent chapters expand on this introduction in the context of Japanese history.
A Date Which Will Live in Infamy
This site shows the typewritten draft of the December 8, 1941, speech in which Franklin Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. The draft shows Roosevelt's hand-written edits, including his change of the phrase a date which will live in world history to a date which will live in infamy. Students can also listen to the beginning of the speech.

Introduction to Metamorphism
This 83-slide PowerPoint presentation introduces metamorphic agents and changes. Stress, strain, tension, compression, and shear are discussed as well as the lineation or foliation that results from such effects. Metamorphic classification includes dynamic, thermal, thermo-dynamic, contact, regional, and shock metamorphism. Specific regional metamorphic events are discussed in detail, including the Scottish Highlands, Otago, New Zealand, paired metamorphic events of Japan, the Skiddaw aureole, U
Visualizing Cultures opens a window on modern times by wedding popular images and scholarly commentary in ways that were not technologically possible until recently. Focusing to date on Japan and Asia in the modern world, these units enable users to “see” historical moments as they were actually depicted for mass audiences at the time from various national, cultural, racial, ideological, and individual perspectives. The graphics themselves also reflect the evolving nature of different medium

Classroom Innovations through Lesson Study
Classroom Innovations through Lesson Study is an APEC EDNET Project that aims to improve the quality of education in the area of Mathematics. This project is sponsored by APEC Members Japan and Thailand. The APEC-Tsukuba International Conference III was broadcast live from Tokyo, December 9-10, 2007. The project has produced useful papers describing mathematical thinking, lesson videos of classroom instruction. This project focuses on Lesson Study with the goal of improving the quality of educat
A Toolbox for Working with Living Invertebrates
My objective is to promote more successful collection, culture, handling, viewing, and classroom investigation of living invertebrates by using the "right tool for the right job." To do this, I present ideas for building and using novel, inexpensive tools (i.e., "gadgets and gizmos") for efficient collection of a wide variety of living invertebrates in the field. I also offer new approaches, materials, and tools for improved handling and viewing of living invertebrates in the laboratory. A centr

"Please, Let Me Put Him in a Macaroni Box" The Spanish Influenza of 1918 in Philadelphia
In 1918 and 1919 the Spanish influenza killed more humans than any other disease in a similar period in the history of the world. In the United States a quarter of the population (25 million people or more) contracted the flu; 550,000 died. In the early 1980s, when historian Charles Hardy did interviews for the Philadelphia radio program "The Influenza Pandemic of 1918," he was struck by the painful memories as many older Philadelphians recalled the inability of the city to care for the dead and
"I Glanced Up--The Statue of Liberty!": Emma Goldman Describes Her Deportation in the Era of the Red
After World War I, a "red scare" gripped the United States. One reflection of this climate of hysteria was in the "Palmer raids" on radicals. Striking without warning and without warrants, Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer's men smashed union offices and the headquarters of Communist and Socialist organizations. They concentrated whenever possible on aliens rather than citizens, because aliens had fewer rights. In December 1919, in their most famous act, Palmer's agents seized 249 resident ali
Post-Settlement Erosion and Deposition
In this example, a field laboratory in introductory geology becomes a test of a hypothesis: Does the model proposed by Stanley Trimble for Coon Creek, Wisconsin adequately describe the history of post-European-settlement erosion and deposition in a small drainage in southeast Minnesota? This field lab is detailed on the site, which describes leaning goals, a context for this lab's use, teaching notes and downloadable handouts, and assessment recommendations. There are additional references and l
The Science of Measurement: Accuracy vs. Precision
This site defines precision and accuracy and offers dart and bullseye illustrations as a visual example of the difference between them. This explanation is provided as a resource for a lab on measurement for an introductory science distance-learning course from a community college.
