Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting!
If you are a current student of mine, you will find information and materials for your class under the "LHS" tab above. As I build the site, I will add useful links and a writing section. For my colleagues, I also intend to add materials that are useful for social studies teaching and teaching pedagogy and praxis in general. Please note that I have current classroom materials at a sister website at Wikispaces. Links are embedded in the class notes in the LHS tab.
I reside (along with my co-authors) at Amazon.com because of "Rozmovliaimo," a textbook to learn the Ukrainian language. Click on the "Ukrainian/AAUS" link above to find information about ordering the book or to download audio files that are keyed to the dialogues and exercises in the book. There also are other Ukrainian-language resources there. As well, I have been a member of the executive board of the American Association for Ukrainian Studies in one capacity or another since 1996. I have links and information on Ukrainian studies under the "Ukrainian/AAUS" tab above.
Under the Miscellany tab, you can find out a bit more about me through my curriculum vitae and other links. I also will be placing other material there that doesn't fit in the other nodes—but I will try to make sure that it is useful material for those who are interested in the main parts of the site.
A number of correspondents of mine in several of the fields in which I work have asked me to start a blog and I intend--eventually--to comply. The web writing tab has a link to a Wordpress site. That is going only in fits and starts.
Critical feedback on how the site works for you would be much appreciated--especially if you are a student of mine. And, yes, that is what my desk looks like most of the time.
