The Website Assignment

posted Feb 18, 2013, 8:06 AM by Jason Brunken
For the next two weeks, the 6th Grade class will be building educational websites that teach about an ancient civilization. I began doing this assignment a couple of years ago. Given the fact that information today is predominantly gathered on the Internet, children need to learn how to not only access that information, but how to use it and contribute to it using the tools available today. Students will hopefully learn skills doing this project that they will be able to use for a long time.

To view the details of this assignment and access the various resources that the students will be using to create them, head over to this page. This page serves as the students' portal to the assignment.

This will be a challenging activity for the kids, but I am confident they will do very well. When the websites are completed, they will be posted right here on the class website and at school. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the assignment and the tasks it involves.
