Vocation Information Center - Love this Site!

I recently ran across a web site that can keep me busy (obsessed) for hours. True, one of my "jobs" is to explore web sites; however, there is a reasonable limit to how much time one should spend exploring, I suppose. Every click of the mouse is a usable resource or link to another resource.

Vocational Information Center is full of academic resources designed to facilitate integration with vocational curriculum. These resources include links to general academic directories, English, language arts and literature, math, science, history, geography, social studies, inventions, biographies, and so very much more.

That's just where it starts! You will find links to reputable sites for everything K-College. My last spiral into this site was all about linguistics. I found some great resources for my writing classes -- fun stuff. Fair enough, linguistics may not sound like fun, but I found a Linguistics Fun Page -- clearly a sound and valid argument that linguistics is, in fact, fun. What more can you ask for?

Take a 5 minute break and jump in. Please feel free to share cool stuff you find.

I mention this site in The Eighth Floor eNewsletter, along with a variety of other sites. If you don't get our eNewsletter and you would like to, email Phyllis at She will make sure it happens.
