The book is divided into two sections. The first provides a background for teachers regarding what World Wide Web is, a brief history of the Web, using the Web with Students, and the research behind Web use in the classroom. This section is not an exhaustive coverage of these topics. Rather, it is meant solely to familiarize teachers with the Web. The second section of the book takes a more detailed approach. It is a step-by-step process guiding teachers through the design, development, and implementation process of the Web for use in the classroom. This process includes how to evaluate Web projects, how to manage Web projects, and how to integrate Web projects into the curriculum. Teachers will learn how to design Web sites and will be able to guide their students similarly through this process to develop student - created Web projects.
