"The Miracle Worker" and Web 2.0
Sandi McElravy's 9th grade English students recently studied The Miracle Worker, the story of Helen Keller. As part of this unit, the students researched a medical condition of their choice and then wrote an i-Search paper. Finally, they were asked to summarize their research findings using online Web 2.0 tools in order to share what they learned with their classmates. The ninth graders used Wikispaces, Glogster, Voki, and Wordle to publish their information. Many of them went beyond the project requirements and taught themselves how to use some of the tools.
The finished products are linked to the English 9 wiki. Take a look!
