The following resources should be seen as suggestions for use with the lesson plans provided in the Reorganizing Curriculum Section of this Module:

Maps ‘N’ Facts was a software program used for all maps, flags, and some factual information. Broderbund produces it and I find it to be the easiest to use atlas program.

Library of Congress/ Federal Research Division/ Country Studies/ Area Handbook Series is at http://lcweb2.loc.gov/frd/cs/cshome.html and I was amazed at the amount of information on countries that could be found at one site! Some of the information is outdated, but for general information it was great. A lot of pictures, maps, and charts as well. You need Adobe Acrobat Reader for some of them. Check out the Bibliographies on the Outline Homepage of each country.

Oneworld.net is a fantastic site for articles about more recent controversial events around the world. The country index is quite extensive. http://www.oneworld.net/themes/country/index.html
