Reflect and Decide

Now that you have looked at several classroom/teacher websites...

  3. What content features (types of articles, photos, videos, assignments, files, etc.) stood out to you?

  1. What is your purpose in creating a class website? 
  2. Why do you want a class website? 
  3. Who is your target audience? 
  4. Who will add content to this site?
  5. What are 5 features or items that you think are most important for your class website? 
  6. What are 3 or 4 names that you have in mind for your site?
