  • Students should have finished reading Huckleberry Finn, or the selected piece of literature.

  • Choose the software that students will use to publish their scrapbooks. This lesson assumes that students are using PowerPoint; however, you can adapt the lesson to use other presentation software or Web publishing software.

  • Students should have a working knowledge of PowerPoint and its capabilities. Consult the PowerPoint Design Tips handout if needed.

  • If your students need extra practice or a more structured introduction to finding and evaluating Websites, complete the Inquiry on the Internet: Evaluating Web Pages for a Class Collection lesson before beginning this project.

  • If desired, arrange for additional sites for students to explore. Try to limit the time that students spend freely "surfing the Web" to ensure the best use of class time.

  • Test the Interactive Website Evaluation Form on your computers to familiarize yourself with the tools and ensure that you have the Flash plug-in installed. You can download the plug-in from the technical support page.
