The InfoTective: Evaluating an On-Line Curriculum Framework.
Watson, Kenneth L.
This paper reports on the findings from a qualitative case study evaluating an online curriculum framework for high school students. This framework integrates content, context, and technology with primary documents for the "Valley of the Shadow" Civil War Web site. Data were collected through interviews with selected students and the teacher, the students' and teacher's reflective journals, student reports, in-class observation supported by research notes, and evidence of participation in activities. An emergent design was used to analyze the observational and reflective journal data. Findings indicate that students were highly engaged in the activity and obtained a deeper understanding of American Civil War history though a designed reading, writing, and concept mapping instructional activity. Contains 13 references. (MES)
