Wikis, Glogs, TeensHealth…Oh my!

Today in class we have several activities that will be taking place. You will be reading several articles and visiting several websites about body systems.

First:

  1. Go to http://williamsonscience.pbwiki.com
  2. Click on Log In at the upper right
  3. Log In with your Username and Password
  4. Click “Create a Page”
  5. Name your page using your first name and first initial of your last name and Articles (ex. John Doe would use JohnDArticles)
  6. On your page, you are going to write your summary/analysis of Texting on the Move
  7. When you finish your summary/analysis (30 to 50 word summary, minimum 100 word analysis), click “Save”
  8. Please provide a link to the article in the title. To do this, first open the article in a new window or tab. Next, type the name of the article, highlight it, and click the Globe/Chain Link button.
  9. Change Link Type to URL
  10. Copy the URL from the article page, and paste it into the box beside http://
  11. Click OK.
  12. We will work on linking your article to a page for each Core.

After summarizing the Texting Article, check out TeensHealth for other articles related to kids your age. I encourage you to look through the site, however, some of the articles fall outside of the realm of our studies for the year. Please stick with the sections on “Your Body”, “Food & Fitness”, and “Staying Safe”.

Find one more article and write a summary/analysis on the same Wiki Page you just created. To add a Horizontal Bar between summaries, click the button with the “A” above and below the horizontal line.

When you finish, raise your hand and Mr. Williamson will tell you what to do next.

    I think the WIKI is really cool and would like to have more time in class for everyone to work on it. Also the Teen Digest has some very vitle information and was wondering if you let us read them more often.
