Using the Internet To Strengthen Curriculum.
This book helps teachers learn how to bring the Internet's World Wide Web into their classrooms and encourage students to tap into this resource. Using the dozens of examples and strategies provided, teachers can help students: use search engines effectively; quickly find Web sites and understand their content; conduct sound research; think critically to learn independently; avoid plagiarism; and construct presentations on what they have learned. Six chapters examine: (1) "Why the Internet?"; (2) "Taming the Web"; (3) "Searching the Web" (e.g., search engines, search engine indexes, dealing with search results, building a Web lesson, expanding the search with another search engine, search engine help sites and directories, and specialty search tools); (4) "Reading the Web" (e.g., virtual field trips, reading for understanding with the e-sheet, one-computer classrooms, and reading for deeper meaning); (5) "The We Search: Intermediate Student Use of the Web" (e.g., Web searching, tools that limit student Web access, and monitoring student Web use); and (6) "The Free Search: Independent Student Use of the Web" (e.g., preparing for free searches, using search tools independently, evaluating Web site content, and recording new information). (Chapters contain references.) (SM)
