Project Proposal

My course load isn't exact yet so my project has to be something I can adapt to different areas. Since current events is applicable, in my opinion, to all social studies, I'm thinking of have the students create their own web-based almanac for the year in reviews. I had done some looking at the official world almanac and I believe the project can be broken down into different categories so that students can follow something they are interested in. At this point I'm more familiar with Blogging though I have toyed around with Weebly and Prezi as well. Its possible I suppose to incorporate either or both and get the students doing it.

  1. An Almanac sounds like a great idea. A blog would work well for this... you are going to have to make sure you have fellow students comment/interact with their work. I hope you have noticed this blog is much better when we are all commenting on each others ideas and work. It leads to more conversations and ideas. You want to test out which Blog/tool you want to use to make sure it will work. We found some times on certain filters google blocks more then 5 login on Blogger at a time. Something about ip address from school setups.
