  Project Overview


Each student will be designing their personal web page to be unloaded to our site on Calvin and linked from our school's home page.
GOALS:
  • My students will learn about the Internet.
  • They will evaluate other web sites and learn what constitutes an effective one.
  • To show students how the language of Shakespeare permeates modem day English, and that it contains many words and expressions already familiar to their vocabulary.
  • My students will learn how to publish to the WEB
  • Students collaboration and writing skills will improve

  Curriculum Connections


This project will fit into our Language Arts and Computer Studies programs. The children will develop a home page as part of their language program. Then, they will have to edit, revise and prepare the paper or document for transfer into HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). Lastly, the students personal Web page will be unloaded using FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and published to the Internet at our school's home site on Calvin.
The intended learning outcomes of this project in Technology Education are:
  1. An understanding of online communication and how it is used.
  2. How to publish to the Internet.
  3. Writing and communication skills developed.
  4. Collaborating with other students and teachers who are designing Home Pages on their choice of interest.
In the process, the students will come to an understanding of the technological terms used in computer programming and Publishing on the information highway.

  2. Through the use of our networked computer system, we will upload our files to main site on Calvin.
  3. Pictures and related documents will be scanned using our flatbed scanner so that images can be included, on finished product.
  4. Adobe and L-View will be used to enhance our images.
