Brief Description of the Site:
Located in Baltimore, Maryland Francis Scott Key Technology Magnet serves children in pre-Kindergarten through grade 8. The school's Home page offers a one-stop spot for parents to find important updates, contact information for grade level administrators, and information about events. There are also links to special areas for students, parents, and teachers.
How to use the site:
Visit the Teacher Center to see the school's online Lesson Plan Construction Module. Designed by the school's technology coordinator, this tool assists teachers in developing lesson plans based upon five dimensions of learning. If you're not familiar with this model, the dimensions of learning are explained in another link. Try the form yourself, or use it as a model for building a similar tool for your site. The Our Community area is a nice example of linking a school's Web site to local resources.
Note: School Site of the Week runs every Friday in this space. Submit your favorite school Web site to coordinator Susan Brooks-Young at Sjbrooks@aol.com.
