How I Use It
I created a class website via Google Sites. The wonders of Google allow me to embed my lesson plans, videos, calendar with important dates, and a virtual copy of our class notebooks. Students can easily access the information they need to be successful in my class. Parents are very happy about this website and how it helps them to make sure that their students are doing the correct homework.
If you are willing to put in a lot of work at the beginning, this is an excellent way to run a website. I did spend hours during the week leading up to school, but now I spend about 15 minutes a week on keeping it updated.
