Logo Sharing Home — Sources for Lesson Plans and Fact Sheets

This page contains an archive of the earliest online sources of information on which CHAI based its lessons and Fact Sheets, which appear in the Sharing Home section of CHAI’s website (www.chai-online.org/lessons/). At the bottom of each lesson plan and each Fact Sheet, under the title Resources, we list the sources for that lesson or Fact Sheet (such as a book or website, for example). Listing sources makes it easier for the reader to find out more about a particular topic or to check the facts stated.

Information shown at a particular url can change often, unlike a book, for example, which only changes when it is edited and reprinted. To preserve the information in the urls listed under Resources, we archived their content here. We did this only for the earliest urls cited. Later urls cited appear only on the lesson plans or Fact Sheets.

A check next to a lesson title indicates some sources are listed here. Additional sources may be listed below the lesson itself, which is on www.chai-online.org/lessons/

X An x next to a lesson title indicates no sources are listed here, only below the lesson itself, which is on www.chai-online.org/lessons/
