If you have Biopoems that are NOT on the Biopoem page, please put them on or see me if you have a problem. I put a couple of blogs and Biopoems on the proper pages, but couldn't find some. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

Another concern is that some of you do not seem to have student pages. PLEASE TALK TO ME. Are you having trouble? I can help!

    (in the BLOGGING folder, on the right).

  • What are your thoughts on setting, theme, plot, characterization, symbolism, irony, etc.?  
  • Similarities to Lord of the Flies?

3.  BLOG with ideas for our wiki. Vote on colors!

4. . Go to CREATE PAGES, on the right.

  • Make a page for yourself to experiment on, store things, etc.
  • Since only one person at a time can edit a page, your own page can be where you work on your biopoems, blogging, etc. copying and pasting it elsewhere.
  • Store it in the STUDENT PAGES folder.

5. Put your biopoem on the wiki--with decorations, if you choose!

  • There is already a page created for this. Go to See All Pages, on the top right.

6. Go to the "Copyright and Fair Use Page" (go to See All Pages, on the top right) and answer the following questions:

  • What is copyright?
  • What is copyleft?
  • What is fair use?
  • What is plagiarism?

***You MUST write out the answers by hand and turn them in to me. Do not post this on the wiki.

7. Work on your CREATIVE TEST. It's due Friday, September 19.
