Mount Dora High School, home of the “Hurricanes,” is located in the city of Mount Dora, Florida, approximately 30 miles northwest of Orlando, Florida. Ms. Straughan’s AP History class and Mr. Buell’s Economics classes are participating in this year’s Web Archiving Project. This is our first year archiving, and we are excited to be selecting and tagging web sites. In preparation for web archiving, we created an on-line file sharing site in “Moodle” to view and discuss the proposed web sites and to avoid duplication.

Paul VI Catholic High School is located just outside of Washington D.C in Fairfax, Virginia. We’ve created the Webcrawlers Club to be part of this program. The club is student-run, with the school librarian serving as the advisor. Chosen sites are an eclectic mix recommended by Paul VI’s students.We have a lead student for each of our three collections, each of whom is in charge of the site descriptions for their collection. Our club members are proud to be the connection between the Paul VI community and the students of the future.

The Educational Enhancement Program is located at Sheehan High School in Wallingford, CT half-way between New York and Boston. We have 20 students in grades 10-12. Each class spent time simulating in school our natural web surfing activities that they would have followed at home. It is becoming increasingly evident that while time spent on the “web” might be increasing. the number of sites visiting is decreasing. Many of the sites that ended up being saved were for places that we visit regularly, and websites for the apps that we use.  After choosing the websites, we found that almost every site could fit into one of three categories: Daily Life, Entertainment, and Shopping.  We think it is an honor to be able to contribute to the archive, and in our own little way help to “write” history.
