5. Special Projects

  • “We often develop web-based materials as part of grant projects, professional activities, or personal projects that don't fit within the context of other areas of our website. This page links to these projects. In addition, the page links to websites of schools, projects, and conferences where Annette and/or Larry have participated in projects or conducted professional development activities.”

  • This is a helpful site because it shows some ways a teacher can use their resources to teach their class and many of these sources were interesting and fun to look at.

  • “Information literacy standards for student learning, indicators for student performance, and hundreds of collaborative lesson plans around the country give us some indication of the skills students are expected to master as effective and efficient users of information.”

  • “Fluid environments involve using multiple modes of communication to convey a complex, interactive message. Information flows smoothly from one media to the next. The strengths of each media create synergy. The result is something more dynamic than could be done in a single medium.”

  • This is a great way to teach a class and it makes a lesson more enjoyable and it is very interactive.
