Week 12: Early Americas IDs - group work



Working together using this wiki

Think of this wiki as a shared online whiteboard. The entire class can share information using this wiki, making your research accessible to everyone. You no longer have to complete the IDs all by yourself! Play around with this wiki: Notice how you can add comments to a page, see what people have changed, and edit all the text.



1. YOU are responsible for the term/concept next to your name (work closely with your partner this week). You need to use the textbook (and possibly other resources) to research your term/concept. It's the only one you and your partner are responsible for, so make sure you include lots of details to share with your classmates. You can post your description in paragraph form or a bulletted list - just be complete.

2. Once you have posted your own term/concept, you have the opportunity to add to your classmates postings. If you see something that is wrong or needs more explanation you can edit their term/concept. However, you must include your name with any changes you make.

3. Finally, you can print off this "wiki" and file in your notebook (you are keeping a 3-ring binder full of stuff for this course, right?).
