Wiki Database: Expanding our cultural and contextual lens

Objective: Students will (prior to class) be able to identify their group and edit their group's wiki. 

As a class, we will create a database of information gathered before, during, and after reading "Julius Caesar". You will be responsible for upkeeping your groups section of the database. Each group will present their information (informally) to the class periodically throughout our reading. 

We will begin working on this tomorrow. However, I have included a brief how to guide for review. 

Prior to class tomorrow:

  • Add your name to your group's wiki page (group emailed to you).
  • Make sure not to remove other individuals!
