Green, Abbie Brown and LeAnne Robinson's MAKING THE MOST OF THE WEB IN YOUR CLASSROOM should be a mainstay of any serious teacher's library: it tells how to translate internet technology into classroom applications, from designing web sites to helping students develop their own internet-based projects, whether it be a blog, locating web activities, or assessing information.
