Research an assigned “Topic of Interest” to share with classroom teachers.
Create an on-line wiki highlighting important information on the assigned topic.
Send a message to all classmates inviting them to view and add new information to the wiki.
Add new information to other groups’ wikis upon their invitation.
Your Teaching Assistant will give you information on how to link your wiki to your ePortfolio.
You will be creating a wiki with Confluence, a product licensed by The University of Iowa. In accordance to the licensing agreement, your HawkID will not be able to view or access your wiki after graduation. See wiki instructions on exporting wiki pages to PDF’s. Please export your opening page as a PDF and link and upload it to your ePortfolio for a permanent record of this project.
Your group’s wiki will be judged by the quality of its content, design, and by meeting the below requirements:
Have a home page that identifies the topic and the participating group members.
Clearly labeled titles, headings, labels, spaces and pages.
Content and organization is easy to read, understand and navigate.
Contain four to five pieces of important information on the topic that is useful for teachers. For ideas see guiding questions under each topic found later in this lesson.
At least one link to other relevant website, an inserted graphic, and a link to a supportive video.
Adding at least one piece of valuable information or viewpoint to another group’s wiki when invited to do so.
The opening page is exported as a PDF and linked and uploaded in your ePortfolio. Link the PDF to Group Inquiry Presentation on the Standards Page and the course page for this course (07es102_coursepage.htm).
Have a table of four or five URLs (Internet addresses) citing journal articles your group used as information sources.
Note:At least two of the sources must be journal citations found using EBSCOhost. State which search engine or database was used. See guidelines for referencing Internet sources within EBSCOhost itself or under the heading “Citing Resources for Tables of URLs” found later below in this lesson. Adding at least one piece of valuable information or viewpoint to another group’s wiki when invited to do so.*
Consistent citations/references make your work look more professional and make it easier for visitors to your site find interesting and relevant information. Following are a few examples of citations/references using the American Psychological Association's (APA-style). For more details, refer to an APA publication manual; APA documentation, or APA-style electronic formats. [example of a resource citation wiki page]
