Contributions were included when they focused on the wider overview provided in most introductory courses. In the “Introductory Courses on Special Topics,” however, some courses constructed around specific themes were included to show how courses that are structured in this way provide an alternative method to traditional survey method for introducing students to the discipline.

The range of student populations that these teaching materials have been crafted for range from middle school to the graduate level. To help locate the reader who is navigating this wide range of resources, demographic information about courses and their instructor preface each item. Although attempts were made to recruit resources from K – 12 practitioners, only one submission in this area was received. While educators working with these groups may be disappointed, I am hopeful that a future collection focusing on K – 12 could be developed. - EC
