The Stellar Schools Internet connection will allow longer and quicker access for more of our students to get on-line.
Students will be able to surf the World Wide Web and connect with many other groups who have different and varied view-points on a wide range of environmental concerns.
We believe that project will be a great educational value to our students. Students will accept computer technology as a user friendly educational tool. The student environmental action project will encourage students to take action, help improve and enhance their knowledge of the environment.
Students will have greatly enhanced communications skills at the end of the project. Most importantly, students will learn how to objectively handle serious environmental problems and become better environmental citizens entering into the new millennium.
Students will be evaluated on anecdotal recording, by teacher observation, and formal and informal testing. Oral or written projects will receive a letter or percentage grade.
Students improved environmental awareness and attitudes will be a major component of the evaluation process.
