	I don't think PERCH is quite what you're looking for.  This is more
of a research tool than an educational bit of software.  A nice simple one
which students can easily learn is called BEAKER (I think) and is available
for MacIntosh systems.  You can enter an organic structure, and it will 
simulate a guess as to what the sturcture would be, as well as providing 
opportunity for students to investigate unknowns by interpreting these

			Good luck,


P.S. I am an IBM and UNIX user, and I do not know of any other educational
programs of this nature for these systems --perhaps beaker is available for
IBM now?
