Teaching with the Internet: Lessons from the Classroom.
Leu, Donald J., Jr.; Leu, Deborah Diadiun; Leu, Katherine R.
This book shows teachers how to effectively integrate the Internet into the classroom, and illustrates how teachers are developing classroom communities filled with the excitement of learning and discovery. Each chapter begins with a story of how a talented teacher uses the Internet in the classroom and then discusses the lessons that can be learned from this experience. Chapters include: (1) "Welcome to the Internet"; (2) "Developing Navigation Strategies with Your Students"; (3) "Communicating on the Internet: E-mail, Mailing Lists, and Other Forms of Electronic Communication"; (4) "Effective Instructional Strategies: Internet Workshop, Internet Activity, Internet Project, and Internet Inquiry"; (5) "English and the Language Arts: Opening New Doors to Literature and Literacy"; (6) "Social Studies: A World of Possibilities"; (7) "Science: Using the Internet to Support Scientific Thinking"; (8) "Math: Thinking Mathematically on the Internet"; (9) "Special Ideas for Younger Children: Using the Internet in the Primary Grades"; (10) "Using the Internet to Increase Multicultural Understanding"; (11) "Including All Students on the Internet"; and (12) "Developing a Home Page for Your Classroom." Also included are over 30 e-mail messages from teachers around the world, describing the lessons they have learned from using the Internet. Many chapters provide listservs and newsgroups to put teachers in touch with other teachers facing the same challenges. Changes appearing in this edition are expanded coverage of and/or inclusion of: K-12 education, Macintosh and Windows-based platforms, both Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers, integrated instructional materials for teaching with the Internet, new central sites, time-saving strategies for search engines, citing Internet references, child safety strategies, new classroom scenarios, strategies to avoid the growing commercialization of Internet sites, photographs of teachers who share e-mail messages, and new Internet resources for teachers and children.
