Welcome to my web class!

A class web site is a creative way of getting students excited about a subject, keeping them up to date on assignments, and providing them with valuable online resources. Because a class site should be engaging, I'll present information that makes the subject interesting and fun, such as brain teasers or polls about current events. I have also included plenty of links so students can explore a wealth of ideas on the web.
