A class web site can be a creative way of getting students excited about a subject,
keeping them up to date on assignments, and providing them with valuable online resources. Because a class site should be
engaging, I'll present information that makes the subject interesting and fun, such as brain teasers or polls about current
events. Of course, I'll want to include plenty of links so students can explore a wealth of ideas on the web.
are examples of the content I might include.
Events and Announcements
Don't forget, we're taking a trip to the Museum!
In the News
Here I might mention a story in the news that pertains to my subject and solicit opinions from the class. Or I might ask a
question about material we covered in class, for example:
This week we read a great short story. If you could be any
of the characters in this story, which would you be and why?
I'll post the answers on the "Class Bulletin Board" page.
