"Oregon Weather" Lessons up!

The "Oregon Weather" web site offers nine very interesting interactive online weather lessons and activities. Developed for adult learners in basic skills development programs, the site also includes instructor notes, weather links, and hints on adapting the lessons regionally.

All of the project's authors are Oregon adult education teachers in areas including basic skills, G.E.D. preparation, reading, and writing.
