"Marketing Violent Entertainment to Children" -- FTC [.pdf]
With a bit of fanfare, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released on September 11 a new 104-page report which accused the entertainment industry of marketing violent material to children, even when that material is labeled for mature audiences only. The report was conducted after requests by President Clinton and some members of Congress in the wake of the school shootings in Columbine, CO. The report finds that, though entertainment companies have taken self-regulating steps to identify mature content, they regularly target children under seventeen in marketing those same products. While recommending additional self-regulation by the industry, the FTC report does not call for any legislative remedies at this point. In a well-timed interview with the New York Times, Vice-President Gore chided the entertainment industry and stated that he would seek new regulations if the report's recommendations were not adopted within six months. The full text of the report is available in its entirety or by section at the FTC site, along with the official press release. [MD]

Two from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) [.pdf]:
Teachers' Tools for the 21st Century: A Report on Teachers' Use of Technology [.pdf, 178 pages]:
Executive Summary and Chapters One and Two [.pdf, 28 pages]:
The NPEC Sourcebook on Assessment [.pdf]
Volume 1: Definitions and Assessment Methods for Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Writing [.pdf, 118 pages]
Volume 2: Selected Institutions Utilizing Assessment Results [.pdf, 52 pages]
Interactive version:
In the past week, the NCES has issued two significant publications. The first, Teachers' Tools for the 21st Century: A Report on Teachers' Use of Technology, "uses multiple data sources to describe teachers' use of education technology in their classrooms and schools." It examines the availability of computer and Internet technology in the classroom, teacher training and preparation for using such technology, and the barriers that teachers encounter to its use. Key findings of the report include the fact that approximately half of the public school teachers who had access to computers or the Internet used them for classroom instruction and that the most frequently reported barriers to instructional use of computers were "not enough computers (78 percent), lack of release time for teachers to learn how to use computers or the Internet (82 percent), and lack of time in schedule for students to use computers in class (80 percent). The second publication, The NPEC Sourcebook on Assessment Volumes 1 and 2, offers "a tool for researchers who are seeking comparative data about the policy-relevance of student outcomes measured in the primary skills areas of critical thinking, problem solving, and writing." The first volume provides a "a compendium of information about tests" used to assess these skills at the postsecondary education level, while the second volume "presents a series of case studies at postsecondary institutions highlighting the successful use of assessment data for policy-related decisionmaking purposes." An interactive version of the Sourcebook is also available, though we found this to be more difficult to use. [DC]

Civil Rights in Mississippi Digital Archive
Maintained by the McCain Library and Archives at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM), this Website features "an Internet-accessible, fully searchable database of digitized versions of rare and unique library and archival resources on race relations in Mississippi." Currently, the site contains 63 transcripts of oral history, each one supplemented by a brief biography of the interviewee, a list of topics discussed, information about the circumstances of the interview, and best of all for researchers, a find function for searching each transcript for particular terms. Eventually, the Website plans to offer no less than 125 oral history transcripts that emphasize "local sources with truly national significance." In addition, plans are in the works to include photographs and distributed civil rights literature from the time. Given Mississippi's pivotal role in the Civil Rights movement, this site will surely be of great use to researchers of the Civil Rights era. The project is presented in cooperation with the USM Center for Oral History. [DC]

Harry S. Truman Library and Museum
One of the ten Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum features documents and materials from the Truman era. Highlights of the site include original documents relating to the Korean War, the Berlin Airlift, the formation of NATO, the decision to drop the bomb, the Marshall Plan, and the Truman Doctrine. A detailed chronology of Truman's life and times from 1940 until his death is also posted along with photographs, educational programs and resources (including Project Whistlestop, an extensive Website offering online activities for K-12, last featured in the March 24, 2000 Scout Report), and online museum exhibits. Even a quick visit to this Website powerfully reminds us of the pivotal role Truman's presidency played in the history of the 20th century. [DC]

Prosperity for America's Families: The Gore-Lieberman Economic Plan [.pdf]
This 196-page document from the democratic presidential and vice-presidential candidates Al Gore and Joe Lieberman details their proposed economic plan for the United States. Their plan centers on issues of the American families, and their goals include "extending the life of Social Security and Medicare," increasing the family income by one third, and cutting the wage gap between men and women in half. The first chapter of the report describes the candidates's goals to tailor the American economic plan to help Americans and their families. The subsequent eleven chapters investigate the plan in greater detail, including proposed economic policies and budget outlines. The plan also links to the official Al Gore Website, which offers additional information about the economic plan. The proposal provides an in-depth view of the Gore-Lieberman economic plan in easy-to-read language. [EM]

Philosophy - Neuroscience - Psychology (PNP) Archive of Papers and Technical Reports -- Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri [PostScript]
The Department of Philosophy at Washington University offers an extensive archive of papers and technical reports on interdisciplinary issues involving philosophy, neuroscience, and psychology at their PNP Website. The documents can be browsed by author's last name and by a number assigned by the maintainers of PNP, but no search option is available. Titles are listed with abstracts in HTML format and links to the full text, typically offered in PostScript format, though some are in HTML or ASC II. We found one bad link on our visit, but the archive is kept current, and many leading scholars in the field have posted work here. [DC]

A Good Beginning: Sending America's Children to School with the Social and Emotional Competence They Need to Succeed -- US Department of Health and Human Services [.pdf]
Released on September 6 by the Department of Health and Human Services, this 23-page report compiled by The Child Mental Health Foundations and Agencies Network examines the issues surrounding the social transition of children from pre-school and home environments to K-12 education. The purpose of the monograph "is to summarize the research on the social and emotional risk and protective factors that predict early school outcomes and to analyze the federal policies that seek to improve these outcomes." The publication also explores the existing gaps between research and practice, and makes recommendations for reform. [DC]

Electronic Literature Directory
Electronic Literature Organization
The heart of the Electronic Literature Organization's Website, this Website presents a "comprehensive directory of work" in the field of electronic literature. Electronic literature is here defined as any literature with an electronic element available on the Internet and thus includes both experimental Internet novels and animated poems as well as audio versions of traditional works that have been made available on the Web, such as the postings of authors reading their own works available at sites like the Atlantic Monthly's Poetry Pages. The directory's virtues include size -- there are over 400 links for poetry alone; thoroughness of annotations; and ease of access -- the directory allows users to search and browse by author, traditional genre, type of electronic media (hypertext, recording, animated text, online generated text, and other multimedia), and keyword. In addition, the creators have struck a balance between the democratic impulse of the Internet and the desire for aesthetic quality, allowing individuals to register to have their works appear in the directory but requiring submission of their work to an editorial review by the Directory's board before posting. With individuals like the postmodern novelist Robert Coover and Larry Wangberg, CEO of ZDTV, behind it, this Website promises to give electronic literature a new level of visibility and credibility. A good thing, even if Coover's prediction that "the vast majority of the human race will simply do without literature" if they cannot find it on the Web does strike us as a premature epitaph on that four-centuries-old technology: the printed word.

Playing from its strength, CNN offers this new education site built around issues in the news as covered by various CNN programs. The site comes in two versions -- one for students and another for teachers. The student version features news stories; student reports and commentary from CNN's Student Bureau; online polls on adolescent issues; feature stories in health, entertainment, and popular culture; and Reel History, a section highlighting significant moments in recent history through video chronicles. The teacher's version offers a wealth of lesson plan guides, timelines, reference links, and an extensive collection of materials for units in the subject areas of social studies and history, science and technology, geography, economics, language and fine arts, health and fitness, the environment, mathematics, and world languages. To view video segments, users will need QuickTime, RealPlayer, or Windows Media Player. Some interactive elements require the application SimPlayer. Note: pages are loaded with graphics and links and may task lower bandwidths. [DC]

The NPR 100: The 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century -- National Public Radio [RealPlayer]
Last October, working off of a list created by NPR staff, critics, and scholars, NPR listeners and a panel of musicians voted for the 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century. Throughout this year, NPR has been broadcasting stories featuring these works on All Things Considered NPR's Performance Today, and other NPR shows. The Website currently features 53 of these broadcasts, which typically run about ten minutes and feature performances of the musical piece along with a background report on its genesis and significance to American music. The list is both fascinating and profoundly eclectic, ranging from Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms to Nirvana's "Smells like Teen Spirit" with representatives from folk, rock, jazz, R 'n' B, gospel, punk, American musicals, the hit parade, and country. The broadcasts are listed in order of appearance (most recent first) with annotations, or alphabetically without annotations. A description of the voting process is also posted. Visitors will need RealPlayer to listen to the broadcasts. Note: we do wish that the creators of the site had chosen the QuickTime audio application so as to avoid that wobbly streaming effect that so undermines a piece like Barber's Adagio for Strings.[DC]

American Indian Resources
Multicultural Resources
This Website offers a directory of briefly annotated links to resources and Websites in Native American Studies, Texts, Culture, Literature and Background, History, Representations, Languages, and Nations. Students and researchers can find information here on everything from the representation of Laguna women in Leslie Marmon Silko's fiction to the Bureau of Indian Affairs's official definition of a "tribe," to dozens of links for Native American law and advocacy issues. All of the pages we visited had been updated in the past few months, and the site links to a page by Elaine Cubbins, graduate student at University of Arizona, "Techniques for Evaluating American Indian Web Sites," that not only serves to give a sense of the inclusion criteria of the site's authors, but provides a kind of tutorial for doing Web research related to Native Americans or Native American issues. The Website is authored by Will Karkavelas of Osaka University and is part of his larger site, Multicultural Resources, offering similar directories for African-American and Hawaiian studies.

School Psychology Resources Online
With over 1,000 annotated links, this Website offers a valuable directory of online resources in the broad and burgeoning field of school psychology. Resources are divided into two broad categories: Specific Conditions, Disorders, and Disabilities, and Other Information. The first includes listings for such topics as Attention Deficit Disorders, Deafness, Eating Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Mental Retardation, Substance Abuse, and Tourette's Syndrome. The second catch-all category includes such topics as Adolescence, Assessment/Evaluation, ERIC Clearinghouses, Law and Education, Mental Health, Professional Organizations, and about a dozen others. The links are authoritative, and the Website is updated daily. A features section also includes an online bookstore, daily cartoon, and jobs information. The site is created and maintained by Sandra Steingart, who holds a doctorate in education and works in the Office of Psychological Services in the Baltimore County Public Schools. [DC]

Founded and maintained by by Christine Cupaiuolo, a former newspaper reporter and writer/researcher for C-SPAN, this new e-zine seeks to exploit the increasingly growing intersection between politics and popular culture. As its mission statement says, "popular culture guides politics, often possessing a greater influence over our imagination and our decisions than any rule of law. Politics, moreover, invades popular culture, often suppressing or exacerbating concerns that first emerged in other supposedly apolitical venues." If that sounds a bit stuffy, we can only say that the articles are not. The second issue published last Friday devotes its main section to issues of work and includes the article "What is Hard Work? -- written by a university professor who, remembering that his father sold hot dogs and dodged bowling pins -- disputes the notion that academics have it tough. Other features in this issue examine the nexus between professional sport and the marketing of sex and gender, the popularity of The Sopranos as motivated by a nostalgia for "an old-fashioned, vigorous, and indiscriminate man," and the obsession with Survivor as an indication of a rise in American individualism and a falling off in party loyalty among presidential candidates. Readers who get exercised over the ideas in the articles can join the online discussion at PopForum, and a Mixed Media section provides links to media-related pieces. More like Salon than George, only time will tell if PopPolitics can carve a genuine niche for itself in the exploding world of ephemeral cultural commentary. [DC]

The Complete History of the Discovery of Cinematography
Subtitled An Illustrated Chronological History Of The Development Of Motion Pictures Covering 2,500 Years Leading To Cinematography In The 1800's, this Website presents a prehistory of Cinematography beginning with the cave drawings at Lascaux and the shadow plays of Ancient China through the "earliest-ever extant illustration of the camera obscura in 1420 and finishing with the first true "films," albeit very short ones, in the late nineteenth century. The site is structured as an annotated timeline with graphic illustrations but, strangely, no video. Researched, compiled, and written by Paul T. Burns, a Canadian film historian, the Website offers an interesting summary of humankind's fascination with light and its capacity to project visions of the imagination. [DC]

UN End of Millennium Summit Final Declaration
.pdf version
The UN has posted the End of Millennium Summit Final Declaration signed by over 150 heads of state who attended the Millennium Summit earlier this month in New York (see the September 5, 2000 Scout Report for the Social Sciences). The document articulates 32 points, expressing the goals of the UN for peace and prosperity in the coming century. Among the more substantive statements are a commitment to "minimize the adverse effects of United Nations economic sanctions on innocent populations, subjecting such sanctions regimes to regular reviews" and a promise to give full support to the political and institutional structures of emerging democracies in Africa. Among the most ambitious goals -- and one quite possibly beyond the powers of the current UN to realize -- is the goal "to halve, by the year 2015, the proportion of the world's people whose income is less than one dollar a day and the proportion of people who suffer from hunger; and also, by the same date, to halve the proportion of people who are unable to reach, or to afford, safe drinking water."

8. "The Spy of the Century?"
9. Time: "Feds Fed Up at Bill's Wen Ho-lier-Than-Thou Act",2960,54934-101000915,00.html
On Monday, representatives of Asian-American groups met with the President and demanded a full review of the FBI and Justice department's investigation and prosecution of Wen Ho Lee, a Chinese-American scientist held for nine months without bail under suspicion of spying at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Last week, the government abruptly dropped 58 of 59 charges against Lee and released him in accord with a plea agreement in which Lee admitted to removing classified materials from the Laboratory, one of the lesser charges in an indictment that had originally sought to establish Lee as someone stealing US nuclear weapons secrets for the Chinese government. The presiding federal judge, James A. Parker, expressed criticism last Wednesday of the government's handling of the case and of the harsh treatment of Lee, who had been denied bail and kept in solitary confinement for the preceding nine months. In particular, Parker noted with concern the coincidence of the government abruptly resolving the case just two days before Justice Department attorneys would have been forced to turn over documents to the Judge detailing the FBI's process of selecting Lee for investigation and its subsequent interrogations. Henry Tang, a Asian-American advocate for Lee, echoes the desire of many Asian-Americans to have the issue of possible racial profiling at the Nuclear Weapons Labs investigated. But in spite of a rising chorus of criticism that includes the President, much of the press, and members from both parties in Congress, both Attorney General Janet Reno and FBI director Louis Freeh have pointedly declined to follow Judge Parker's recommendations and apologize to Lee for his treatment.

The New York Times posts stories reporting on the sentiments of Asian-Americans in the wake of the plea bargaining (1) and Judge Parker's statements last week (2). A special section from the Washington Post(3) offers an archive of Post stories on the investigation and court case going back to August of 1999 as well as a transcript of Director Freeh's statement last week and the text of the February Circuit Court of Appeals decision to uphold the denial of bail for Lee. The Federation of American Scientists has posted the full text of the government's original 59-count indictment (4). A September 15 editorial from the Los Angeles Times(5) criticizes Reno, Freeh, and Department of Energy Secretary Bill Richardson for their violation of Lee's civil rights. The Cox report, a massive three-volume report published by the House of Representatives committee on national security in January of 1999, (6) details the types of US nuclear weapons secrets obtained by the People's Republic of China over the last few decades and the means by which such secrets were acquired. The Federation of American Scientists has also posted a People's Republic of China document (7) answering the charges in the Cox Report. posted a detailed and sympathetic profile of Wen Ho Lee (8) and his daughter, Alberta, who has been an outspoken voice in support of her father. In a brief, unfortunately-titled article from Time(9) FBI and Justice Department officials complain of their lack of support from President Clinton in the Lee case and express their belief that the case was unsuccessful but not unjustified.
