 Classroom WIKI

In my classroom we use a wiki for collaborative learning. Students take turns constructing knowledge of the text and sharing it online on the classroom wikis. Students are then allowed to use this shared knowledge for studying for the on demand task and final project on the novel.

This year's wiki can be found at: http://e3english12-2009.wikispaces.com/
