Georgia Louviere attended (June 25-July5) the WebWatcher Summer Institute K-6 at the NSTA headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. She was chosen from 450 candidates to attend this workshop which was funded by the National Science Foundation. There were 23 other participants from all over the country. I was part of the group that searched the internet for outstanding websites that matched the National Science Standards on the topic of Earth and Space. Each group was made up of 6 teachers. The other groups were Heredity, Organisms, and Materials and Matter. It was our job to evaluate the websites we found with a rubric which was especially designed for this workshop. The websites will be made available to all teachers as part of a WEBWATCHER GUIDE which will be formally released in the fall. The Guide will represent the best websites in Science to help teachers intergrate the internet into their curriculum.
