I liked how the tasks were easy to understand and well layed out. I also liked how other students could comment on your work (vice-versa). I think this web site was a good way to impersonate civil war figures, and a great way to further understand the challenges of the Civil War.

I think that we should have all of our homework online, besides like the review sheets, but everything else. No more reading guides, its bad for the enviroment, and its taking oxygen away becuase we have to cut down trees. Doing online homework would be fun and good for the enviroment.

this was much fun to do because most of kids our age are on the computer most 
of their time, so this didnt make social studies home work hard. i learned 
how to use many webpages better and faster. what didnt realy work for me was 
how much we had to write. it was kinda a lot, but luckly i finished it with 
just enough words.

The role-playing was a lot like acting on a stage. You get a part to learn 
and you become that person for a short period of time. I learned a lot more 
through wokring online as someone else rather than studying from a book and

Sometimes when i went to different web pages looking for different 
information it helped a little bit sometimes but sometimes it was hard to 
find some information like for example the early childhood for Frances Kemble 
it was really hard to find information on that but i got different 
information and plugged it all together so it made sense and it started 
getting easy and easy every time. I really like the online homework i think 
its not boring and i enjoy using the computer to do homework instead of a 
piece of paper and pencil/pen.
