This is an excellent resource for general information, with some surprising depth in certain topics. The suggested laboratories are appropriate for various levels of teaching, and some are quite creative. 3-4 hours is a serious underestimate of the amount of material available. A particularly nice feature is the embedded links which go to current weather graphics. I feel like an opportunity is missed for suggesting student activities using NWS resources on the internet, to develop understanding of the various products. There is a little bit of that, but there could be much more. The most serious flaw is the hundreds of spelling and grammatical errors throughout. I hope NWS can find a copy editor.
