      Dear AEC Members-

      Below are parts of two messages sent to me by Colleen Popson. As you
      will see, she is interested in developing a Website. She would like to
      work with us in some capacity. I've spoken to her and to Norma about
      the possibilities. Norma has invited Colleen to meet with us at the
      very beginning of our meeting on December 1st. If additional discussion
      is needed, we can make those arrangements. Her resume is also attached.
      Please let me know if you have questions.

      Thanks,

      Kathleen

      From Colleen Popson:

      I'm in the process of developing a website that I think might be of
      interest to the AAA, specifically the AEC. The website would serve as a
      state-of-the-art, comprehensive anthropology resource for students and
      teachers, grades 6-12. The site's primary component is an exciting,
      interactive anthropology encyclopedia, vetted by scholars, that students
      could use to research topics within all major subfields.
      The site will make the best use of technology and design, encouraging
      users to explore human experience, culture, and change through space and
      time. The website also will feature a "teachers only" section with a
      bulletin board, an events page, and lesson plans that build from the
      encyclopedia and help meet curriculum standards for science and social
      science classes. Other elements include virtual exhibits from museums
      and sites around the world and a place where students can write blogs,
      write to each other, and post classroom projects online.

      I have spoken with Ruth Selig, who has given the project her initial
      endorsement. I would like to set up a time to meet with you as well,
      1) to provide more details about the project, 2) to ensure this
      initiative aligns with the AAA's and AEC's objectives and programs, and
      3) to determine if there are ways that we can collaborate as the project
      develops.


      Here's a short resume do you give you some idea of my background and
      qualifications for this project. My publications are not listed here.
      They consist primarily of articles in Archaeology magazine, and the
      children's magazines Dig and Appleseeds, as well as a number of
      scholarly pubs and technical cultural resource management reports.
