Week 31: Cold War 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 - check out the "wiki style page" on the HOME page or in STUDY TIPS & TOOLS (BB).




1. YOU are responsible for ONE term/concept this week (Don't forget you have to CLAIM the term/concept on this page). You need to use the textbook (and possibly other resources) to research your term/concept. It's the only one YOU 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. POST ON TIME!

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?).

4. Use this checklist to check your work: (I use this list to grade your wiki) [By the way, I take off 5 points for each item you don't have - more for "skimpy" content]

  • Create a link to the main page (You can cut and paste the exact title from the main page)
  • Descriptive and CREATIVE title (have fun with it!)
  • Brief summary of term/concept - use bullets or highlight key points
  • Picture/map - must include CAPTION
