I have started using this in my classes for the common reading at my college this year: Huckleberry Finn. This is the most complete site on Twain I've seen. I found especially riveting the section on the various depictions of Jim over the years and what those portraits say about the culture of the times in which they were created.I create links to certain aspects of the site on my on-line schedule, which directs the students to certain areas I want them to see/use/experience. For example, the Mark Twain "quiz" was a fun way for them to introduce themselves to aspects of Twain's life before we even started reading.Technical Remarks:This has an easy point-and-click style. Nearly everyone, especially computer-saavy students, are able to use this site. The main difficulty (we should always have this problem) is the overwhelming amount of material that the site covers.
