2. Summary of Our Project
My group's Door to Diplomacy project focuses on hunger in the world. My group, which consisted of Claire Bernacki, Etienne Escobar, and myself, researched are topic very thouroughly before proceeding to the task of creating our website. WE included several topics that are responsible for world hunger, such as shortage of food and a lack of water in less fortunate countries. We then proceeded to add a little flash to our website after we had presented cool, hard facts and put videos on .

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The problems we have overcome is not knowing what to do and not having much experience in building a website and making it to the requirements. We did this by asking for help and experimenting with different things and checking what was the most compatible with our website and what were trying to achieve.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Working on doors to diplomacy has meant for me the chance to see how I work with a group and how I can contribute and show leadership to make sure it gets done and completes all recommendations excellently. Also it helps me see how I can learn and use those skills to make something new and use our creativity to make a good project.
6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our doors to diplomacy project focused on the topic of hunger in the world. We had done enough research in class in order to have sufficient information to build our project. Through this whole project, we learned how to use new tools such as twiducate, animoto, weebly, moodle, and other online tools that will no doubt prove useful in the future. In my opinion, using the internet for teaching is more effective than the regular method because it is more advanced and more interesting for students.
