6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We did library research online. We got knowledge of new methods of website making e.g. online page creation by sitebuilder software. We were working as a team for this project. Internet was found to be faster option for library research. 20 years ago, internet was not in existance. At that time our teacher Anand used to do traditional library reasearch. Now online reaserch is easily possible, which is much faster than traditional library research.
