Every week, CM presents a brief collection of
noteworthy, useful, or just interesting sites we've turned up and actually
Please send us URLs and evaluations of any web-sites you think
deserve the exposure.
- Canoe is not about Canoes; it's a brand-new on-line news venture from some of Canada's biggest
media organizations -- like the Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa Suns, the Financial
Post, and Maclean's. They promise to update their stories twenty-four hours a day (as we finish production
on this issue of CM, top stories are about the band "Rusty's" recent success at
the Junos, on Andre Agassi's engagement, and, oh, yeah, the afermath of the new Federal budget.)
- Yahoo! PageBuilder
- Personal Web pages. The Label Makers of the new millenium. Do we need them? No.
Do they make us feel like individuals? Yes. Frankly, writing HTML code isn't
brain surgery, but this page will whip one up according to your (or your students')
specifications without having to know anything.
No scrolling text, but nothing's perfect.
- YES Mag-Canada's Science Magazine for Kids
- Listen, I'd be willing to put this in just because the address has
a tilde in it. Perhaps you have to be in the business to realise how few
people know where those are on the keyboard . . . Anyway, this is a very slick site
with science news, projects, and quizes. Sample question:
Do dolphins sleep? If so, how do they do it without drowning?
Now, that's a good question.
- Well Known Canadians
- There are a lot of obvious jokes I could make here,
but really, this is kind of cool, organized by:
Actors Actresses Artists Astronauts Athletes Authors
Business Comedians Directors/Producers Entertainers
Journalists Miscellaneous Musicians Scientists etc.
Surprise: Conrad Bain. Continuing Embarassment: Jim Carrey.
- The Chronicles of Narnia
- If your students don't like Narnia, consider getting a transfer.
