      Never Again:  Students Explore the Slavery Experience:  5th graders from Eric Ensey's class at Endeavor Elementary School in Issaquah, Washington developed this web page on slavery.  When Ensey discovered that the social studies textbook devoted little space to this crucial topic, he and his students conducted their own research.  Their reports are now featured on Africana.com, a web site  devoted to African American history and culture. 
    • Spaghetti Book Club
    • Young Poets:  Site developed by Lori Eldridge as a place for young poets aged 5 to 18 to publish their work.
