Brochures, Pamphlet & Research Papers: Kick It Up a Notch

Still assigning students brochures, pamphlets or write research papers to show what they have learned? Kick it up a notch by having students build a website instead!

Weebly is a free, easy to use site where students could share the same information normally shared on a brochure, pamphlet or research paper. Why would you want to switch? Website building is a college and career ready skill, it kicks your lesson up a notch, adds a tech component to your lesson, re envisions your lesson activity and students don't have to purchase software that can costs between $200-300.
