Rename the title

To something like:

  • What do I need to know before using this handbook?
  • Target readership
  • Who this handbook is for
  • etc.

Agreed. Changed links and title to "What do I need to know before using this handbook?"

mmmm -- thinking about logical order here. Shouldn't this section on: What do I need to know before using this handbook? Be the first section of this chapter -- or even some kind of preface to the handbook.

Perhaps this is a legacy from an earlier iteration -- but the subsection seems out of sequence here.

We could also include sections on How to use the book, and the bullets Kim suggested above.

I moved this section up to the front of the book.

I didn't add any information to the section, though. Added to issue tracker.

I added most of your edits to the document.

Two things:

1) I think Wayne has specific reasons for mentioning K-18 educators in the introduction. I tried changing the sentence to mention K-18 educators, while being inclusive of other groups. 2) We need to decide whether or not we are going to do case study-type tutorials before we can add text to that effect in the Preface.

Do we need a separate glossary for this handbook? Or simply use the main glossary?

  • K18
Ktucker (talk)12:33, 6 June 2008

I apologize, this may come off confusing. The main glossary you linked to is an older version of the one in the educator handbook. Therefore, the educator mini-handbook glossary should either be backported to the main glossary, or it should be ignored. I think I'll backport it.

I envision each handbook having its own glossary, depending on the audience.

Sgurell (talk)15:08, 6 June 2008

Yes - a glossary for each book would work best.
