You will not add anything to the Wiki outside of class – we will all work on the Wiki on scheduled days in order to avoid mass confusion. Your post must be composed in Word and be copied and pasted onto the Wiki. Please do not edit anyone else’s additions. Wiki Post Requirements The following requirements must be met in order to receive full credit for each of the eight posts. Posts must be 300 words minimum/500 words maximum. You must have at least two (2) scholarly sources for your post – your book will be your primary source. The other may be another journal article, book, speech, or historical document – as long as it is a scholarly source. The post can be either in paragraph form or bullet points or a combination – the subject matter, NOT your personal preference, should determine your choice of format. Your post must be composed in Word before the Wiki update day. Your Word document will be turned in on the day we update the Wiki. Your personal historical post must also contain an appropriate image along with your write up.
