How to use this Educator's Guide: Many of the links in this document are for navigation within a section, rather than pointing to new documents. The links are designed to make it easy for returning visitors to navigate and return to specific sections. Thumbnails of the photographs with blue borders are linked to enlarged (70-90k) black-and-white images.

This document prefers Netscape 1.1 or greater, with Netscape 2.0 highly recommended. Also, a 256-color (or gray) screen and at least a 14.4 modem link are suggested.

Do you wish to refer to the large version of the photograph while reading the accompanying text? To facilitate study of the photographs, PC users should right-click on the thumbnail and pick "Open Link in New Window;" Macintosh users should click and hold on the thumbnail and pick "New window with this link."

Often, highlighted words will lead you to a "note" providing a definition or explanation. In this case, just click return to pick up where you left off.
