Many thanks go to Lesley Wellman, Hood Foundation Curator of Education at Dartmouth College, for her advice on my original proposal and for all her wonderful feedback throughout the evolution of this project.

Thanks also go to Deb and Margaret Caldwell, a colleague at Hanover High School, for all of their support in evaluating materials for this course.

Thanks also go to Deb Nelson, a colleague at Lebanon High School, for her support through the application process for the grant that made this work possible.

I feel especially privileged to have had support and encouragement from Jim Nachtwey and thank him for his continuing interest in this project.
