Summercore 98
Session#1
July 12-16
Seven Curriculum Groups


Can you believe how patient Peter was during the merry-go-round on Sunday night? What would YOU do if you were put into the wrong group? Would you be that patient?


These web pages were first created during our "Coast to Coast" Monday afternoon activity. All of the enhancements were done using HTML coding by Ron from the Webb School who was inspired after hearing Eddie Andelman talk about his headmaster Art Scott, former Nobles colleague!


A few samples from Summercore Session #1


Each group is charged with writing up information on the themes of "evaluating and incorporating." As we cover topics of CD-ROMS, the web and so on, we are hoping to produce our own web pages and/or publications on these different curriculum areas!

We're here roasting on the east coast, and we found a hot (well, maybe just warm) web site about the publishing industry. The site includes news about bookstores and author tours, reviews of recent bestsellers,and feature articles on topics such as National Book Award winners.

There are sections by grade organization, by countries, by topics as well as chat rooms for teachers and interactive resources for youngsters.

There are separate sections for teen and youth

Patricia Polacco is a children's author. This web site gives you the opportunity to learn about her books, author visits, schedule bookings by the author and purchase her original artwork.

This site is cited in Yahooligans, a great site for ELA for kids in general. However, this site concentrates on support to young writers. Lots of different resources, connections to authors, places to get published etc.

Here's a rich general website for tons of things re education K-12.

This one one provides an overview of English literature, but also gets specific about genres, authors and time periods. In particular, I was very impressed by the thoroughness of the research. I took a close lock at The Rape of the Lock.

High school students are crying for this site. In fact, they would prefer to stay in on a weekend night and chat in order to learn more about...grammar! Yes, this is a fascinating site for grammar enthusiasts. Not only are basic terms and examples addressed, but students have an opportunity to have their most pressing questions answered.
