USING WEB-BASED TOOLS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS CLASSROOM
Reproducible activity book
By Susan Young. How can 21st-century technology be best employed in the classroom? Students who complete these activities will apply a number of skills directly related to academic standards and 21st-century learning. The activities provide clear, explicit lesson plans and an explanation of the instructional potential of wikis, blogs, web-based word processing, and Web-based presentations. Each tool is featured in five activities. Lessons can be finished in a single class period or expanded across a few classes for longer projects. Includes vocabulary lists, teaching tips, assessments, additional activities, recommended websites, and more. Correlation charts connect each activity to the NCTE/IRA Standards, and other frameworks.
