Background For Teachers:
Students develop a rubric for evaluating individual Web pages.
Students assess the strengths and weaknesses of their own and others' Web pages.
In their portfolios, students reflect on both what they learned and their learning strategies.
In their presentations, students demonstrate their growth in spoken, written, and visual language and their understanding of the thematic question: "Who am I?"
Students share their decision-making processes in conferences with the teacher.
Students invite audience responses to their Web pages.
