    I've decided to use the HyperStudio program with my choice novel unit.
    During this unit students are given a choice of seven novels, they rank
    their choices, and then I put them in a group with others with the same
    choices (usually groups of three or four). After the students are done
    reading the novel (let me know if you want more information on ALL that
    they do for this unit), in order for my students to take ownership or to
    make even more of a personal connection with their chosen novel, I
    assigned them to produce a group Hyperstudio project where they encourage
    their classmates to read the book they chose for the chose novel unit.
    Their projects are like movie previews--giving enough information for the
    students to become interested in reading the book without giving away too
    much of the plot.

    The technology people at my school are wonderful! They actually set up
    drop folders for each group, so each group member would have access to the
    project at anytime from any computer in the school. I also had access to
    each group folder. The students usually do choose to work as a group at
    one computer (we have three labs here, so I just need to sign up to use
    one of them), but they can work individually on separate pages.

    Again, if you want even more specifics about this (the whole unit, etc.),
    I have my project paper done and can forward a copy to you. Just let me
