This is an Internet assignment on the website How Stuff Works. The website offers articles about various topics.
My assignments consist of several questions that go with the article. The link for the article is on the assignment. Students may also go to How Stuff Works and simply look up the title.
These assignments vary in length. This is an example of one that I would sell for $1 because it is one page. 2 page assignments are typically $2.
They work well when you are in a jam or are going to be absent. They can be given as homework or computer lab assignment.
The one page assignments would likely take only 20 to 30 minutes to complete. 2 page more like 45 to 55 minutes.
Please check out my entire series of listings of this type. There will be more to come soon as well.
I use these in my classroom and my students really like the change of pace and being able to use technology.
