As I’ve mentioned before, our mainstream ninth-grade English classes uses a brilliant curriculum designed by Pebble Creek Labs.
Many of our ninth-grade students also take a class in basic computing, and their computer teacher has agreed to have our students work on English projects for one-day each week. It’s great — it’s like having an extra class period each week.
I thought readers might be interested in seeing what kinds of projects they’ll be doing during their computer time. Our first unit is on Natural Disasters, and you can see the assignments at our ninth-grade English Class blog.
When I get around to it, I’ll shift the blog content to the Edublogs Campus site we’re setting-up, but for now this one will do.
