What the Wiki?


Thank you for working so hard on our study guide project. You each did a great job working hard on the Wiki.

I have a couple of questions for you and I would like you to pick one or more to answer.

1. What questions do you still have about ancient Rome? Is anything confusing?

2. How did the wiki project help you better understand ancient Rome?

3. Can you think of other ways that this wiki tool could be used in our classroom? Math? Reading? Language Arts? Social Studies?

Please pick one (or more) of these questions and blog your response before class is over today.

Thank you,
Mr. Ferrell
