At the request of numerous instructors, I’ve created Instructors-only features for the website that are not available to students. In past editions, there were intellectual benefits for students who wrestled with ideas in the Suggestions for Discussion section of Langan and McClish’s Instructors Manual, just as some students making a class presentations drew upon the Exercises and Activities material. But these advantages were outweighed by the inoculation effect that was evident when instructors faced students who already knew Langan and McClish’s best ideas to empower the teacher. I’ve also added some short-answer quiz questions and other features that are obviously for teachers only. I therefore ask you to validate your instructor status in order to receive a password for the Instructor's portion of the site.
Fill out the registration form. You will be asked for the following information.
- Your full name
- Name of the school where you are an instructor
- Your curriculum vitae as an attachment
If your e-mail address is not tied to your institution, you will also be asked for:
- Title of course
- Department name
- Phone number of department office
- Indicate if you are a member of NCA and/or ICA
You will receive an e-mail (usually within a day or two) with a password that you can change, if you wish, after your first login.
To enter as an instructor, use the web address contained in the e-mail, which will lead you to a login page. Enter your registered email address as your user name and your password. For security reasons, it is recommended that you click the logout button (at the upper right of the screen) when you're done using the site or leaving your computer. If do you leave your computer for a time, your session may time out and you will have to login again.
