Note: all links have been removed from this archival copy, but the author questions (bundled according to subject/period) and study guides referenced below can be found in relevant sections of the Resource Gallery. Instructions pages for journals, presentations, etc. were similar to those available in my current courses. MP3 audio of class sessions for selected courses is still available in the Audio Archive. My blog entries for most courses are available from the Blogs Index.
