World History Wiki

Welcome to the class' wiki where we will record what we learn about world history. You will each be responsible for a page for your current project, plus a group page. Over time this will expand as will our subjects and themes we explore.

The purpose of this wiki is to not only collaborate and reference each other's research, but to build a knowledge base of our lessons from history.

This is your site. This is your space. I do request as this is a part of your learning, please respect the guidelines set forth by Broward Schools Technology Policy.

Have fun!


To start this project, click on Community portal to your left. This is where you'll find all instructions on how to set up your wiki page and all requirements for the wiki. Be sure to check it often as information is updated and further instructions are provided.

The link to Ancient Civilizations on your left will connect you to the sources I am providing, plus links to create and edit your group pages.


Project Requirements

    1.  A wiki page will show the evidence of your research.  You must have at least 15 sources of information, 6 of which should come from books, and I will provide 
        another 5 sources for you to use.  Images, maps and other media when appropriate should enhance your wiki page.  This is 30% of your grade.
    2.  Successful completion of advanced searching and copyright mini-lessons.  This will be worth 5% of your grade.
    3.  A script or a project plan and how it fits/answers your essential question and your group's essential question.  This is worth 10% of your grade and will be 
        submitted via google docs.
    4.  Group Participation (15%)
    5.  Your successful project (40%)
