    • Research other websites for ideas
    • Research web 2.0 tools
    • Have a specific project or goal
    • Implement one new idea on the site at least once every 6 weeks (timeline will depend on the complexity of the project

Grading:

Students will be evaluated based on their performance complying with/completing the 2 objectives above. A "student performance interview" will be given with each student to discuss their progress and grade.

Student Expectations

  1. Be on task - Have a purpose each and every day. When specific work is not given, Web Support students are expected to be self-learners and find projects that will improve our website
  2. Treat everyone respectfully - teachers, students, guests and substitute teachers should be treated in an appropriate and respectful manner. Web/Tech support students operate cooperatively in a team and working together is absolutely needed to solve problems. We expect students to be supportive of all other team members.
  3. Be willing to offer assistance to anyone that asks to the best of your abilities. If you don't have the answer, do the following:
    • Ask another web/tech student for ideas
    • Research online for possible solutions
    • Test before implementation
  4. Ask before loading software on to the Tech/Web machines. We want you to try out new ideas and downloading trial versions of software is fine... but CHECK WITH US BEFORE DOING SO

TAG:

Computer classes offer all students the unique opportunity to work beyond the assignment. Students are encouraged to utilize the many features of computer software and their own creative abilities to enhance the curriculum to meet their needs. In each subject/course students will be pre-assessed on the knowledge and skills that will be learned in the subject/course.  The purpose of this pre-assessment is to find out what students already know in order to provide differentiated instruction. All students are encouraged to "think outside the box" to find unique challenges and problems to solve.

Formal or informal pre-assessments may include end of chapter/unit tests, student input and self-evaluation, placement test, specific teacher observational data, lab demonstration or test, work samples, fist of five, thumbs up/thumbs down, or other forms of pre-assessment.  Below is a list of differentiation strategies that may be used. 

Differentiation Strategies
Acceleration Enrichment Multiple Intelligences
Independent Study/Project Compacting Learning Styles
Assignment Modification Tiered Assignments Critical Thinking
Cluster Grouping Contracting
