Wikispaces.com
Students will receive an email invitation to participate in online discussions about ideas, writings, and/or news items that are thematically related to the core content we discuss in class.  Students who do not have email accounts or limited computer access should speak to me individually.

Students should not share their login or password information with other students.  Your email account is your login identity.  Keep password secure and private.

It is also important for students to realize that the Wiki for our class is an extension of our class, and students should conduct themselves accordingly.  Comments or sharing that is hurtful, inappropriate, or disrespectful will be treated as though those comments or behaviors were made in our physical classroom.
