ThinkQuest: Summer Olympic Games

This student-created site offers an overview of every Olympic games since the modern games began in Athens in 1896. There's an overview of how many sports were in each game, how many competitors, and any significant news that occurred during that year's games. There is also a section on the history of the ancient Olympic games and two quizzes for students to test their knowledge of where the games have been held every four years and what events have occurred during each (the 'Game' is quite difficult). The grammar and spelling are a little spotty, but the information is good.

"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.

At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
