All ECTS scholars are expected to be able to find information online.
The FA1 Field Trip assignment is really a type of CyberSpace scavenger
hunt in which scholars are expected to demonstrate their ability to
find, describe and use information posted on a variety of web sites.
PREPARATION FOR THE FA1 FIELD TRIP
This field trip requires access to the WWW.
Scholar's may use their own home or work site computers (highly
