dc.description.abstract All children (and teachers) can benefit from knowing how to effectively cope with their anxious feelings, but particularly those students whose lives are limited by anxiety, worry, and fear. This project provides readers with an understanding of anxiety in children and what it's like to live with this condition. It also discusses some practical classroom techniques and strategies that will help students handle anxious times in their lives. Teachers may use this resource to understand the problems of children in their classrooms and to teach children how to cope with anxious feelings in a healthy, positive manner. This project also includes a linked reference guide for teachers and parents, which contains links to Internet anxiety resources, anxiety children's literature, ways to deal with anxiety, and other helpful sites. This reference guide can be accessed at Jack the Ripper was a serial killer who stalked prostitutes in the East End of London in 1888. His identity remains unknown, despite the life-long attempts of a multitude of individuals to uncover the truth behind the mystery. The legacy of Jack the Ripper has garnered the attention of individuals all over the world for more than a century, which was due in part to the large amount of media coverage regarding the case. This project focuses on each of the murders and the victims, the possible perpetrators, and the causes for the worldwide craze surrounding Jack the Ripper. I researched the lifestyle of London inhabitants in 1888 and the impact of the press coverage of the case. My tour of the area and firsthand experiences with the East End were a part of this process as well. Although my research did not uncover a definitive solution to the mystery, I provide hypotheses concerning the identity of Jack the Ripper and the foundation of his legacy.
