Project 2: The Writers' Network
Students will have the opportunity to post their writing efforts and share in a larger writing community than the school can offer. They will avail of the expertise of experienced editors, who can give positive criticism and reflect a realistic, conscientious audience. All genres of writing will be addressed at the different stages in the writing process. Besides advancing their own writing, they will also act as editors and help others on the network.
This approach will reinforce the writing process as taught in the language program and will make the students more aware of the global importance placed on the process.
The project will give the students Internet access to research ideas for their writing projects. This will offer them the opportunity to communicate through various Internet modes. Also, it will familiarize the students with computers, networking, and traveling over the 'Information Highway'.
