WFW: Writing for Webheads

ASSIGNMENT One - Join the eclass and send an introduction:

If you don't want to send a picture of yourself, you could send me any kind of graphic that you think represents you. Or you could identify a graphic on the Internet, and I can find it and copy it to your page. (You can start with a graphic on the Internet and add your own picture later.)

ASSIGNMENT Two - Participate in the Palace, ICQ, and the Eclass:

Students, don't worry if because of your time-zone or Internet connection you can't do all of these things. Do what you can and do what you have time for.

You should try to write the eclass as often as you can, at least every one or two weeks.

ASSIGNMENT Three - Improve your webheads webpage:

You should try to write or revise something for your web page each week or two. A teacher will correct the grammar and put it on your page. You can compare what you wrote with the corrected piece to see where your mistakes are.

If you want to see a good model web page, look at Ying-Lan's or Choi's.

Bahia has started to dress up his web page by sending in his picture. He's also started his own website at, linked to his Webheads site. See below for addresses of other student web sites.

Gosia has written a good introduction and sent lots photos.

ASSIGNMENT Four - Start your own web site

Ying Lan, Bahia, Jose, Deden, Denilson, and Bubu have started the next step, and that is for YOU to start YOUR OWN web site.

In the end, what you do in this class is up to you. You don't have to do anything if you don't want to. Learning English is like growing food or children. You get from it what you put into it.

In the Writing for Webheads, teachers and classmates are available to help you "grow" your English language skills. We are all making new friends and increasing our skills as well. To us it is worth the time, and we welcome you to join us.
