A special "welcome" to teachers
Welcome back from your summer vacations. Another school year is now ahead of you and I am sure that more virtual visits to the Grand Canyon are part of many lesson plans for the upcoming school year. Over the past two years I have really enjoyed corresponding with both the teachers and the students who frequent my "unofficial" Grand Canyon pages and I am always striving to make improvements to the content. In this area I welcome your comments and suggestions.
Many additions that have been made to the pages over the past two years are the direct or indirect result of questions from both teachers and students:
- The Master Index & Glossary and Master Image Index pages were added at the suggestion of a teacher.
- I have recently begun work on a section on Grand Canyon geology which was also suggested by a teacher.
- The Just For Kids! section was added after some correspondence with a troop leader who was bringing some young Girl Scouts up to the Canyon for a camping trip and a short hike down the South Kaibab Trail.
- The pages for the Powell Expedition were actually added as the result of an E-mail from a student who was attempting to research it, and was disappointed to not be able to find the info he was looking for on the pages. I felt really bad about this and so researched the info myself and added it to the pages.
If you have any suggestions for additional areas that you believe should be covered by these pages or suggestions for improving the content or layout of existing pages, feel free to contact me at the E-mail address given below. These are your pages as well and they should be able to help you educate the young minds that you have been entrusted with.
