Developing Project Implementation Web Pages
Part 5

March 15, 2000

Purpose of Today's Workshop

Participants will spend the majority of their time completing implementation web pages for each of the projects they plan to run this school year. Instructors will be assisting individuals as they complete the selection of all required projects that they expect to implement in their classrooms. In addition, participants will become familiar with Language Arts and Social Studies resources. Participants may use these resources when they encourage colleagues to make use of Internet-based materials. Finally, you will learn how to deal with viruses and virus hoaxes in the classroom.
