Scholars are doing well

I am impressed with how the scholars at West Side HS have come along and have developed their webpages. Attendance is good! Everyone is engaged. As scholars finish and accomplish a task, they move ont help another. The cooperation is good and healthy. They are using the Style Sheet well and beginning to make decisions about their page without conferring with me. They are beginning to not rely on me for every step. The use of the Smart Board is very important so that I can use their pages as models to lessons about HTML, writing,and design. I'm glad I decided to teach this class and to get back to CyberEnglish.

Welcome to a new year

This year, 2008-09, marks my return to using the Internet in my class. I plan on having my scholars obtain a Google account and then make a webpage using HTML on sites. I plan on having them use Blogs and docs as well. I'm hoping to have their final projects, webfolios, be multimedia. The class can be found here. I'm looking forward to this class.
