 ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS

My name is Viona Van Hoose. I teach at Jefferson Middle
School in Oceanside, California.
I teach a Language Arts/Social Studies Core class.
My web site is http://ctap295.ctaponline.org/~vvanhoo/
This is an introductory research project on Ancient
Civilizations in which students look for artifacts on
selected web sites in order to become familiar with the
elements that make up a culture.

  ANCIENT CIVILIZATONS

Summary- Reflections
Completing this project helped me better understand
multiple elements of technology in order to enhance the
learning of my students. I found that middle school
students easily engage with technology and that the
learning is on both sides. As I taught my students, I
learned alongside. Having the right equipment and
excess to the internet is the key to using this form of
teaching. Without ready support it can be frustrating.
ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS

I have learned a lot from this project, but can still
learn a lot more. I hope to continue increasing my
knowledge as I create future lessons.
ANCIENT CIVILIZATONS

The following slides will introduce you to the lesson.


Enjoy.
