Nobelprize.org <www.nobelprize.org> -- "I (Mary Lynne Isham) think this site has potential in several ways: (1) as a research site, it's a resource for some basic information on Nobel Prize winners, incl. their bios, nomination & acceptance speeches, and add'l. info related to the reason each won the prize. (2) on-line interactive games related to the reason for the prize being given. For example, a blood typing game related to the 1901 Nobel Prize in medicine (click on blood typing at the bottom of the home page). This game could be used to determine how well a S understood the instructions on how blood typing works - try the game and see if you like it. (Be careful not to accidently prick the doctor with the needle - she reacts!) This game checks comprehension in a completely fun way."
