    This CALL Class Resources page will be used to post summaries of resources that we have looked at for our Website/Software Evaluation assignments. Anyone can post other resources here that are of general interest to language teachers.
    Feel free to organize and reorganize these resources as you see fit. You have to get used to editing other people's writing in Wikis. It is the nature of the technology. So, please, when you see a mistake, edit it. When you disagree, make a change. When you think that a new category is called for, create it.

    Culture of Peace (http://www3.unesco.org/iycp/uk/uk_sum_cp.htm) This site is devoted to promoting and sustaining a world wide culture of peace through education. They begin by defining peace in its broadest since and then they suggest ways to teach against violence. The site promotes conflict resolution education as a means to promote a culture of peace through curricula. By facing and fighting poverty and social instabiltiy world wide as well as promoting equality we could face a future of dialogue and peaceful conflict resolution.
    Center of SouthEast Asian Studies (http://www.seasite.niu.edu/) This site is devoted to educating people about the languages, culture, and literature of South East Asia. This site includes inter-active games and regional pictures on very specific topics. There are excellent links to additional sites that address the variety of cultures that makeup South East Asia. I particularly like the art and music samples that are accessible for students to really get an idea of specific cultures.

    Bartleby.com: The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy (http://www.bartleby.com/59) This website provides a great service to English language learners and lovers everywhere. It offers an easy-to-search database of classical literature, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as a great number of reference materials. An especially great find is The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy. This dictionary contains terms that "culturally literate" Americans (especially) as global citizens should know. Terms are not only defined as in a regular dictionary, but are also linked to their cultural and historical significance. In this way, one can link from one topic to another through the examples, thus constructing a deeper understanding of a term within its context.

    Not all WebQuests are created equal. There are both design and conceptual differences that can make a world of difference in the quality and success of the WebQuest. I have chosen two example WebQuests below. Both are generally on the topic of global warming, but they could not be more different in how they go about it.

    The second is not very good http://www.itsco.org/webquest/class/kelly/index.html . It has the requisite sections for a WebQuest, but does not fullfill the requirements of these sections. Also, the pedagogical approach is severely lacking. Again, I'll let you decide exactly what this means.
    You're job is to compare the two to determine, for yourselves, what a good WebQuest is. Don't tell us what specifically each does right or wrong. Tell us what the general qualities are that make them good or bad. This discussion will directly affect the path that you take on your WebQuest. I will hold everyone accountable for the "good" and "poor" qualities in these WebQuests and thus, in yours.
