Reviewer Comments:

The first resource in this collection is a webquest for the Museum of Jewish Heritage. Although the link does not work, all the questioning on the webquest is excellent. The museum website can be accessed at http://www.mjhnyc.org/findex.html#.UPILu_L4J8E. In navigating the site, the webquest might need to be adapted, but it is essentially pedagogically sound. The second resource requires internet research on William Shakespeare – and the potential others who might have written some of the work conventionally attributed to William Shakespeare. The resource is detailed and through and guides the student toward a logical conclusion while providing a clear rubric. Several of the resources in this collection have been reviewed individually. The resource on Mice and Men provides an excellent technologically integrated unit, including tasks like: blogging in character, creating character descriptions, writing scripts, filming, etc. The resource has many excellent youtube videos to guide the processes as well as examples of other student work. There is a clear rubric guiding this as well. Also, a teacher’s page explicitly describes the unit.
