FC: Women Who Made A Difference In Nursing History
1: Welcome to my Mixbook Project! The following pages of this Mixbook are examples of work that students created and published following the directions of my nursing lesson plan found at the end of this Mixbook. Technology is a powerful motivator for students. Almost everything students do today, they do through technology. In this project, they can create pages of a book online and then publish and share their creations with other students, their families, and their friends. In addition to being viewed on the Web, a Mixbook creation can be printed out as a hard copy book that can be housed in the classroom, presented to the school library, or purchased by parents and guardians as a keepsake of their student's work. -Derrica Dye
