Cotton, Eileen Giuffre
Presenting a wide array of Internet addresses and sample lessons, this book shows how teachers can integrate the Internet into their K-12 curriculum to actively involve students. The first section of the book (chapters 1-6) deals with the programs needed to use the Internet, as well as 100 great web sites for teachers, how to manage the Internet classroom, and how to search the Internet effectively and easily. The second section (chapters 7-16) contains lessons with clearly stated goals, rationales, objectives, procedures, and evaluation guidelines.
