Encourage your Language Arts or Social Studies students (grades 9-12) to develop their informational and research writing skills by creating a working website! Students will use the handouts to write the following types of articles:
Using the free Website creator WIX, students will use easy drag and drop features to develop a working website. Students can work together to create an informational site that will be able to go LIVE on the internet. With WIX's easy to use tools, students can add counters to keep track of traffic, or forums to encourage comments. Teach students to use appropriate images, video links and informational text to bring a subject to life.
Included in the lesson are 7 pages of instructional information for how to do the group activity. Included as well are 3 handouts explaining how to write informational texts for a newspaper article.
