IDEAS FOR TEACHERS

Teachers, here are some ideas for simple assignments for your students.

We can help you customize a Community for a specific course topic, or even a course textbook.

Please see a sample at: Zenome.com > Business + Work > Business Communication

To use any of the assignments, simply Copy & Paste the ideas below, or adapt them to suit your purposes.

Each assignment is designed to help the student pedagogically to:
-Research Web Pages relevant to course topics
-Evaluate the quality of Web Pages
-Share course-related Web Pages with their peers

Note:
Teachers, if you have already created a unique Community for your course, direct the students to index their Web Pages in that Community. If not, take a few moments to create a unique Community.
From the blue menu bar above select:
> Index a Page > Suggest a Community
