Making a "Web" for Students: From the Classroom to Their Homes and to the Instructor's Home Page.
Zhang, Will
Community college students are often described as less motivated, or "turned-off," compared to other college students. This stereotype has prevented many writing instructors from trying new ways of reaching these students at a Midwest community college, the majority of whom have access to the Internet either at home or in the local library. Using an instructor's home page to assist students' writing has become increasingly important to the students. Two projects have been conducted in the author's writing classes by using the Instructor's Home Page, one on The Three Gorges Dam in China and one on sample essay evaluation. Projects like this, which have been incorporated into China-Year celebrations, greatly stimulate the students' interests in other cultures. A checklist for building a student-friendly home page is also attached. (Author/RS)
