It is Wiki time!

I have started our own classroom wiki. A wiki has elements of a web site and elements of a blog. In short, it is a (free) online space, private, where as the teacher I can post questions or answers, and with an individual login credentials, students (or you, their parent) can do the same… that is I could ask a question, your child could log in, see the question and then add his or her answer to those of their classmates. People say a wiki is like a web page, but with an edit button for any of the associated "members".

All of our students are members, and each now has a username and a password, both of which are necessary to view or edit the wiki.

To begin, you'll need your child's username and password, then point your browser to http://www.wikispaces.com/site/signin

I've only got 2 pages up so far… one on the current novel we're reading ("The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle"), and one on Salmon in the classroom (which begins in January, and will mark my 17th year of participation!)

Sign in and leave word you've been there!
