Using the Whole Library for a Wiki-Based Research Project

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The project was developed through a collaborative effort between two LMS and two teachers. Students use traditional research skills to find literary criticism and then pair this process with social networking skills.  Using a wiki site, students post poem "tweets" and reflect upon their peers' responses.  The students use these comments to conduct further research on whether this poem is relevant to the modern teenager.  All of the research is compiled into a classic research paper.
