Abstract

An interdisciplinary on-line project, connecting two high schools from diverse school districts, positively influenced student attitudes and resulted in a collaborative publication on the World Wide Web. Comparisons of the frequency distributions resulting from administration of an Attitude Survey in the form of a Likert-type scale revealed increases in positive student attitudes toward English and science, connecting the disciplines, technology, and collaborating with students of different socioeconomic and ethnic groups. Barriers to other formal statistical analyses of the data included: the unforeseen changes in population of the two classes; small sample size; and insurmountable technological problems in one of the schools. Further research is recommended to examine similar interventions.
