Name:Ms. Platt's 7th Grade Language Arts Class

Brief Description of the Site:
Maryann Platt teaches seventh grade English at Ashland Middle School in Ashland, MA. Ms. Platt has created an interactive Web site where her students can check for homework assignments, take on-line quizzes, complete WebQuests, and explore information beyond the classroom.

How to use the site:
Students use this site for on-line tests and quizzes, which include units on the novels read in class and weekly vocabulary tests. Platt also finds that the site is a great way to communicate with parents and students outside the school day through e-mailed questions about homework and projects. She notes, "This site has saved me hours of correcting and explaining directions over and over again!" Visiting teachers will want to spend some time reviewing the literature-based activities for both 7th and 8th grade English courses. Available units include Diary of Anne Frank, Twelfth Night, The Outsiders, and more.
