Thematic Units for Primary Grades was prepared collaboratively from 1997-1999 as a graduate course assignment at the University of South Carolina. Over 30 thematic units are designed to focus on children's literature while directing students to explore related online resources and other offline materials and engaging activities.

Professional Development:
Teacher Tap is a "free professional development resource that helps educators address common technology integration questions by providing practical, online resources and activities." Created by Annette Lamb, this site includes mini-workshop sessions designed to foster exploration of the Internet in terms of important educational starting points, connecting with others, determining intellectual property, and using search tools.
