OK...........I don't want to open the can of worms
again...................but, saw this that David P. posted to Trace.
Interesting Robot story from Nasa.........towards the bottom of the page it
has a section called "Thursday's Classroom Corner"  There, you can find,
three grade-level choices, available only in text (for two), and with
graphics for one, but it is a .PDF.  Certainly this idea has existed in
academic circles for a long time, not in web-format, however.

The info itself is linked from NASA's, Thursday's Classroom.com, providing
lesson plans for teachers.

I know that this is not news to most of you, but I found it interesting in
the "simpler language alternative" sense.
