Through the development of a school homepage, students will be given the opportunity to publish written and artistic work. The homepage will also be a vehicle for informing the community about the work ongoing at Coley's Point Primary.
Participating in the development of a school homepage offers students and teachers many opportunities to address curriculum objectives in many disciplines.
Other curriculum objectives may also be addressed as the site develops.
Through the STELLAR Schools connection students will be exposed to the vast possibilities of the Internet. They will acquire an understanding of themselves as part of this wide world of opportunity. Giving students the opportunity to publish for a worldwide audience will enhance the students understanding of themselves as part of the global village.
Evaluation of Language Arts in the Primary school is most often done through individual conferences with the child. Work to be published on the school website will have been developed through the writing process and will have been edited and reviewed by the student, his/her peers and the teacher.
Evaluation of the website and its development will be part of the mandate of the school's Leadership Team.
