Teaching "Federalist #10": A Lesson Plan for High School Teachers.
This national pilot project was designed to determine if telecommunications is an effective tool for teacher training and mentoring. The project envisions telecommunications as a means for teachers to have an ongoing dialogue with colleagues and experts worldwide, using a computer network. Teachers access documents and materials, take part in on-line forums, and contribute materials. Seven schools representing six states participated in the first phase of the project with 14 teachers, superintendents, principals, social studies supervisors, and computer coordinators. The evaluation showed respondents felt the project was helpful to them in terms of teacher to teacher mentoring and that computer networking can play an important role in education. The School of Education computer network at Boston University, SCHOLE, which can be accessed with any personal computer equipped with a modem, was used in the project. The five page lesson plan on teaching Federalist #10 that was used in the project is included, along with a description of SCHOLE. (NL)
