Dr. John's Eazy-Peazy Resources
I first produced these experimental web-based tutorials in the 1990s, as the HTML programming language and standards for designing and developing web pages were first evolving. I have not changed them much since their inception, allowing them, like their author, to assume an historical "look and feel." The content is still very valid, however, and useful for someone seeking to improve their skills in writing, research, public speaking, and creative thinking. Thanks for visiting!
Communication is often blocked by dead ends in creative thinking. I created Dr. John's Eazy-Peazy Resource: Creative Engines to help spark creative ideas and overcome writing road blocks. This resource was included in 101 Best Websites for Secondary Teachers (James Lerman. New York: International Society for Technology in Education, 2005), was featured in The Help Desk (vol. 1, no. 6, 21 June 2002), an online newsletter supporting Kentucky education, and was selected by Encyclopedia Britannica as one of its "100 Best Websites for Teachers." Although the page is no longer available, The United Kingdom's Good Web Guide called me "perhaps the internet's most helpful lecturer." LEARN more.
Speaking publically, in front of other people, is a skill that you will often be called to utilize. But, many people cite public speaking as their top fear, way above getting struck by lightening or bitten by a snake. I created Dr. John's Eazy-Peazy Resource: Public Speaking to help you overcome your fear public speaking and improve your oral communication skills. LEARN more.

RE-search means to look at something in a new way, from a different perspective, shaped by your wisdom and insights. I created Dr. John's Eazy-Peazy Resource: Research Skills to outline research skills that may help you with our own research. LEARN more.
