Pick at least 4 existing Internet projects that generally fit your classroom's age and curriculum. You can find Internet projects in a number of places. Here are few options (see Chapter 4 of the Marcovitz text for more options):
Evaluate the projects based on how well they meet your objectives and whether they fulfill objectives better than non-Internet projects. Consider what your students will learn from the projects and the amount of time it will take to do the projects. Concentrate your discussion on the projects themselves, but also take into consideration the technical requirements of the projects and whether you can meet those. You might think about this as a proposal for your principal to have him/her allow you to do one or more of the projects.
In the above locations, you will find descriptions of projects, but these descriptions will not be enough to completely understand the projects. Some projects will have extensive web pages that you can explore. Some projects will have discussion groups that you can join. Some projects will have email contact information for participants and organizers. Use as many of these resources as you can to find out what really happens in these projects.
Create your report about the projects in the form of a Web page.
If the minimum grading criteria are met, you will receive a B for this assignment. The grade of A is reserved for outstanding work that goes beyond the minimum criteria. See the rubric for more details about grading criteria.
