Using the wiki




General Rules

1. If you state it, you need to prove it. Give examples, links to backup information, etc.
2. If you cite it here, then you need to include a link.
3. If a 5th grader can't understand it, then you need to add a better explanation as well as a link to more information to learn from.
4. Use your own pictures or one from creative commons. Just because it is on the Internet does not mean it is free to use.

Rules for creating notes

1. Only post meaningful, relevant information on your topic.
2. Summarize all information found on the Net and link to it. Regurgitation is not cool (even if it is spitting back actual text).
3. Continue to read your topic and ask -- "What do I not understand about this?" Proceed to answer that question and post your findings. Make it make sense and be able to explain it. I want to know what you THINK.
4. Use some of the websites you read about.
5. Do not delete information of another group unless it is redundant or it needs to be edited to make it better. Remember the difference between collaborating and vandalism.
6. You may be asked to summarize your information in class.
