Teaching for Meaning with Technology in Texas
Havelock, Bruce; Reza-Hernandez, Laura
Learning & Leading with Technology, v32 n7 p33-35 Apr 2005
Two reporters walk toward the editor to share their article on Panamanian culture. Looking it over, the editor asks for a more detailed description and several pictures. Meanwhile, three other writers huddle around a computer, making decisions on the additional content they need for their article on Panamanian customs. Both articles will be included in a new Panamanian-American magazine illustrating similarities and differences between the two societies. As the deadline approaches, teams collaborate with each other, investigate, write, and read information from various Web sites. It is a busy day in the newsroom--at least, it feels like a newsroom: the reporters and editors are actually sixth graders at Sun Ridge Middle School in El Paso, Texas.
