Inside Cancer
  • Excellent resources for educators, beautiful site design
  • None

For as much as cancer has (sadly) become part of our existence, there are many people who do not understand just what it is. Enter Inside Cancer, a wonderful website for anybody who wants to learn about the basics of cancer, as well as a fantastic website for educators. Inside Cancer is a nicely designed multimedia website that is divided into four sections: hallmarks of cancer, causes and prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and pathways to cancer. These, in turn, are composed of instructional animations and commentaries covering various subtopics. Yet, the best feature of the site for science educators is the (aptly named) Teacher Center, which provides tools for teachers to browse the content of the site and create their own presentations, build and share lesson plans, and align content to local and national education standards. An informative site, Inside Cancer is a must-visit site for anyone and everyone looking to get to “know thy enemy.”
