Original Author: Susan Clark, Springfield
- I will introduce the Weebly website to students and describe how to make an account, choose a background, and add elements.

- I will pass out the website requirements and the rubric, so students know what is expected of them.

- Students will choose a topic that is interesting to them and approved by me. Some examples of topics my students chose are types of dance, the marines, hunting, and Leonardo da Vinci.

- Students will use the first day to create an account, choose a background, and start a home page. They will use the weebly elements Title, Paragraph with Picture, and Title with Picture.

- I will use the second lesson to show them how to add a two-column layout and a youtube video to their site. They will have time to quietly work on their site as I help with individual questions.

- I will use a couple more periods to let the students work on their websites and finish them. They can even work on them at home if they have access to the internet.

- When students are done, they can present it to the class. Since one of the required elements is a blog, students can have a conversation about their websites online!
Comments
This lesson plan requires familiarity with the website www.weebly.com. I suggest the teacher take some time to learn the elements prior to the lesson. The teachers at our school actually use Weebly to make their classroom websites, so I was very familiar with it when we started using it as a class. This is a good alternative to the basic research paper. I wish I could attach files to this, so I could attach my rubric and requirements sheet. If there is a way, please let me know.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
Making a website can be used in so many subjects. Students can make websites on a variety of topics. Peers can check out each other's websites and evaluate, critique, and ask questions.
Follow-Up
These websites can be used throughout the year to add lessons a variety of lessons. For example, they can make a Power Point presentation, or they can make a commercial in Movie Maker about their topic and add it to their site.
