Abstract

The World Wide Web offers a great deal of potential for enriching the teaching and learning experience in the K-12 classroom. In many cases, however, teachers lack the time and skills to locate resources on their own. What can be done to help teachers and students take better advantage of the Web? Using the Algebra Resource Center (ARC) as an example, this paper will describe three areas of focus that can improve the effectiveness of sites designed as content area portals for classroom teachers-filtering, organizing, and correlating content to state standards; providing "real world" context for exploring content; and working to build a community of new and returning users.
