New Deal Network

If you are interested in the social programs of US President Franklin D. Roosevelt or in the Great Depressions of the 1930s, this is the site for you. It is sponsored by the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute. There are articles, speeches, letters, over 5000 photographs, lesson plans, web projects, and bibliographic materials, and a moderated discussion list for teachers and historians. There are also family documents, four lesson plans on the Depression and the arts, a photo-documentary of the effect of the Depression on one small Southern town, student poems, articles and short stories from a New York high school in the 1930s, and more.

Interactive Health Tutorials

This is a long list of interactive programs on diseases, conditions, tests, diagnostic procedures, surgeries, treatments, and prevention and wellness. The site is from the US National Library of Medicine, but the tutorials come from everywhere. Some look very good.
