The Four Blocks
http://www.wfu.edu/~cunningh/fourblocks/index.html
The 4-Blocks framework was developed by teachers who believed that to be successful in teaching ALL children to read and write, we were going to have to do it ALL! Doing it all meant incorporating on a daily basis the different approaches to beginning reading. The four blocks --Guided Reading, Self Selected Reading, Writing and Words--represent four different approaches to teaching children to read. Daily instruction in all four blocks provides numerous and varied opportunities for all children to learn to read and write. Doing all four blocks acknowledges that children do not all learn in the same way and provides substantial instruction to support whatever learning personality a child comes with. The other big difference between children--their different literacy levels--is accomplished by using a variety of formats to make each block as multilevel as possible--providing additional support for children who struggle and additional challenges for children who catch on quickly.

Notable citizens of planet earth.
http://www.tiac.net/users/parallax/
The bold claim of this title rather hangs on the definition of 'notable'. With a scope of 18,000 ancient to present individuals, entries are very brief and sparse for Australians. There are nine lines for Tom Hanks; one each for Laurence Olivier and Patrick White; and none for Dawn Fraser or Henry Lawson. The feature making it a useful bookmark, however, is the ability to ask questions with key words, for example 'discovered penicillin', 'Nobel peace prize', 'President of France'. A query on 'Prime Minister and Australia' gives a complete list of prime ministers since Federation, including John Howard.
