We are offering a full year English class to the Juniors called Cyber English. Cyber English is an elective and is all inclusive. Cyber English was begun in 1984 as an Intranet, incorporated the Internet in 1986, and added WWW in 1994. Each scholar has email and a webpage. It is taught by Ted Nellen. There will be equal scholar representation from all the houses and school populations. The scholars will follow the junior English curriculum and take the Regents exams. In addition they will be interns to Ted Nellen in Room 439 during the day. The purpose of this internship is for further Internet training and to serve as assistants to other teachers in Room 439 and other computer labs in the building as more labs become wired. These scholars will work with the new teachers and classes as they come into the Internet classroom. They will be the scholar core of our odyssey into cyber space. Mentoring is another major facet of our on line presence. Cyber English is a serious pedagogical experiment in developing an alternative option (Constructivism) to tradition education and a project to answer the various voices of America for better educational practice.
