The following files were developed over the years to be of help to students in my classes. Students and teachers should feel free to use them as desired. No further permission is needed. China-related materials, from reference tables to full on-line books, are listed on a separate page. (Link) Materials intened for the use of teachers, including the famous quiz makers, are listed at the bottom of the page. (Link)
Academic Integrity & Cheating This is a more detailed (and useful) discussion than a student is likely to find elsewhere. (It even includes the infamous "Disastrous Adventures of Jimmy Gimmie.") Although it focuses on UCSD, and is based in my experience as professor and administrator at UCSD, pretty much all of it is broadly applicable elsewhere.
How To Avoid Sounding Like an Idiot: An Underground Guide to Literacy Even in Termpapers This is the famed and dreaded "gorilla paper." Since people will judge you by your writing, you might as well know what they are going to be annoyed by.
How to Cite Sources As Painlessly As Possible: Bibliographic Format Specimens (& stuff your English teacher never told you) Comment: This is a very useful guide to doing citations and bibliographies in termpapers and articles in the simplest way possible. Examples include kinds of sources that writing teachers never tell people about.
Nican Mopohua: Here It Is Told (The original text of the alleged apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe in 1531. Bilingual presentation, with pictures, originally intended for use with the Nahuatl materials listed above.)
Miscellaneous Texts or Translations for (non-China) Class Discussion
These are texts I have put into HTML format for class use, usually with added introductory orientations (procursi). To the best of my knowledge all are available for free use by anybody. China-related texts (including Taiwan materials) are indexed on the China Resources page.
Interactive Quizzes for Your Web Site Comment: Quizzes made with these pages are designed to be mounted on a teacher's site, but can also be downloaded from the teacher's site to a student's own computer. They are fully interactive, but do NOT report results to anybody but the quiz taker. Perhaps for this reason, they have been very well received by students. Several teachers have emailed me to the effect that they prefer them to commercial products. Datails are provided on linked group of pages.
Interactive Glossaries for Your Web Site Comment: Glossaries made with this page can be used on a teacher's web site or downloaded from the teacher's site to a student's own computer. They provide study aids roughly on a par with flashcards. The script here works fine, but I have decided that, like flashcards, I don't think it is very effective educationally.
Color Tester to check codes for background and text colors on your web pages. (Primitive, but occasionally useful. Works fine off-line.)
