  • ASCDhttp://www.ascd.org/ – (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) Sarah recommended this site as an excellent resource for finding curriculum resources.
  • PRIMO Database – http://www.ala.org/cfapps/primo/public/search.cfm – PRIMO is a means to promote and share peer-reviewed instructional materials created by librarians to teach people about discovering, accessing and evaluating information in networked environments.
  • Purdue Owl Writing Lab’s Avoiding Plagiarismhttp://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/589/01/ – Interesting take on plagiarism. The approach has a bit less finger-pointing than other than other guides could have and no accusatory tone.
  • UCLA’s “Bruin Success with Less Stress” tutorialhttp://www.library.ucla.edu/bruinsuccess/ – Great resource in general, but for my purposes I like to use this as an idea of how to a) create small parts which relate to a larger whole in a tutorial and b) how to intersperse assessment in a tutorial.
