  1. I created an online, web 2.0 type project for my students about virtues. You can take a look at http://www.chcvirtues.weebly.com Students will be creating their own commercials using our cannon video cameras and iMovie. Before they can complete the project, I wanted to create a place to introduce students to the project and get them thinking about the project together. There is a blog where they can interact and share ideas, links for places to do research and embedded videos of examples. Should be fun!
