So, you're involved with CD/YT but you don't have web page:
Have You Considered Creating One?
Seriously. If you're here, you probably have all of the software and hardware that you would need to put up a page of your own.
The cost is minimal. Prior to the creation of amergin.net this page is hosted by one of a multitude of free web hosts and was created using software that came pre-installed on the computer or was downloaded as freeware from the host. Excluding the time involved, the cost of this project to date has been $0.00.
Web hosts have vast libraries of templates so you don't need to learn HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language: the codes which allow web browsers to display web pages).
You don't really NEED to know HTML to put up a page; most current HTML editors function almost identically to word processors (and many current word processors have an HTML editor built in).
In fact, if you already have CD/YT lesson plans on your word processor, you're more than halfway to having a web site that would be of tremendous use to someone, just like you, somewhere else in the world.
Totally intimidated by the thought of integrating the web into your CD teaching by yourself? Well, since you work with kids, I'm almost willing to bet that someone in your class in a shy individual who has difficulty interacting with peers, but who is very intelligent and interested in computers. Creating a web site to document your group's activities would be a great way to involve that student in the group using the student's strength and allowing her or him to share it.
Think about it... What if every person who used drama in the classroom took just one favorite lesson plan, posted it onto a web site, and then linked that site into a webring? How many more people could make use of creative drama with the availability of freely shared lesson plans, ready to use in their classroom? This is the kind of network that the web has an unlimited potential to create.
It's a wonderful thing to have you here because you are interesting in using Creative Drama or have a Youth Theatre group. Take the extra step and share what you are doing with like minded people (you'll be amazed at what happens).
