Dear Reader,

I don’t usually promote Internet marketing products for several reasons. First, there aren’t many good products out there. And for those few good products, the truth is that my primary audience of parents and teachers isn’t interested in Internet marketing, so why bother?

But I know that a handful of my readers do have websites and are interested in learning how to take them to the next level. So, even though there only a few of you (you know who you are!) I felt an obligation to share this resource with you. I’ve been a member of Stompernet for several years, paying really big bucks every month to learn from their faculty, and use their tools. Even though they charge an arm and a leg (no, make that two arms and two legs!) you usually can’t join for any amount of money, because their membership has been closed for quite some time.

But today they are opening up their membership again, and for the first time they are offering memberships at 25% of the previous price. Yup, you read that right. I’m not talking a 25% discount, but a 75% discount! That’s why I felt I needed to let you know. Here’s the link for details.

See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

Biology Printable (** for premium members only)

Biology is the science of living organisms. It is taught at many grade levels, and this week’s selections include sites for AP Biology high-school students, elementary grades, college kids and adults.

Biology 4 Kids
“It’s not just biology for kids, it’s for everyone.” Thanks to the excellent design, this outstanding site from the Andrew Rader Studios is informative, easy to read and simple to navigate. Topics include cells, microorganisms, plants, invertebrates, animal systems and more. Each section concludes with a self-scoring multiple-choice quiz. Overall the site has thirty quizzes, a dozen videos, and a handful of annotated slide shows, all of which can be found on the Activities page. The Site Map is the best place to start to get an overview of the site.

Biology in Motion
Biology teacher and online game developer Dr. Leif Saul makes learning high school biology fun with his interactive mini-lectures, activities, animations and cartoons. He originally developed these for use in his own classroom, and found them effective in both capturing students’ attention and illustrating difficult concepts. When browsing through the site, be sure to note the icons that indicate whether the activity is a mouse rollover, a drag-and-drop, an animation or a simulation.

Cells Alive
The best clicks for high-school students (and adults) are found on the left-hand menu starting with Plant Cells, Animal Cells and Mitosis. Each chapter includes a dozen sub-topics (such as nucleus and cell membrane) that are covered with their own illustrated page. Additional highlights of the site are the amazing photographs found in Cell Cams, Cell Gallery and on free e-postcards to send to friends from your biology class. Think you know your stuff? Try the three tough quizzes on Cell Structure, Microbes and The Immune System.
