Look at This!

     Yesterday I experienced another example of students taking pride in their products when the audience is greatly expanded by publishing their work on the web. (See The Purpose and the Audience.) I was volunteering at the after-school homework program when a student opened the school's website on his computer. I heard him exclaim, "Look at this!" He turned his screen toward me and, pointing to a video, he excitedly explained that it was a math project his classmates made. He hadn't even worked on the published project, yet he was thrilled that it was on the web for all to see.
