Teaching with the Internet

We've created this page to provide resources, lessons, and ideas on teaching with the Internet. The printable activities for classroom use come in two main lesson formats: scavenger hunts and Internet worksheets. We also have several discussion forums where you can share your ideas and links to other web sites about the Internet. Don't get left behind. The information super highway is waiting.

Scavenger Hunts

These Internet scavenger hunts are for intermediate and advanced students. They can be done in pairs or individually. Each lesson will take around 90 minutes. To use these scavenger hunts, print the page and review the tasks with your students before bringing them to the computer lab. Once there, students can come directly to Karin's ESL PartyLand. (Clicking on the links from this site will result in new windows opening in their browsers.)

  • Music - This scavenger hunt will teach students about the International Lyrics Server, MIDI karakoe, on-line music quizzes, and more. Please note, the MIDI karakoe site requires QuickTime. If your computers are not equipped with QuickTime, I recommend skipping this site rather than having students download the program.
  • Movies - A WWW activity in which students learn how to use the International Movie Database, find scripts and screenplays, and more. This lesson will take at least 60 minutes.
  • The News - This Internet scavenger hunt will introduce students to USA Today On-line, teach them one way to find newspapers on the WWW, and involve them in learning about current events at CNN Interactive.
