The Gateway to Educational Materials

An excellent resource for educators sponsored by the US Department of Education, this site is a project of a consortium associated with the Information Institute of Syracuse, Syracuse University. Gateway to Educational Materials (GEM) links to "thousands of educational resources found on various federal, state, university, non-profit, and commercial Internet sites" selected by consortium members. In late August 2002 when this review was prepared, GEM contained more than 25,000 annotated resources, including free sites and materials that required registration or purchase; however, fee-based resources make up a small proportion of the sites. Resources can be located by using an index of keywords, the subject (topic) index, or the search engine. (Excerpted from review by L. L. Scarth, Mount Mercy College in Choice, Special Issue 41 (2004).)

Wilhite in Choice reviews describes NTHP as a "valuable resource for students, new teachers and teacher educators working with new teachers." The site provides much practical advice and includes newsletter of tips. There are advice and discussion forums for sharing ideas.
