Welcome to the MYP English 8 Wikipages on the milieu of
To Kill a Mockingbird
Introduction to WIKI:
This WIKI can be viewed by anyone, but it can only be edited by members of the MYP English 8 Wiki group. Each group, which consists of two or more students, has been assigned a topic for the milieu of
To Kill a Mockingbird
. Each student will create a Wiki with his/her partner from the other MYP English 8 classes. The purpose of this task is to showcase your
intrigue other 8th graders who will view your Wiki.
First, visit "A Sample Page for Students," and examine content and layout of the page. This was created by my students. :)
Start your WIKI space by creating an interesting title related to your topic and adding the creator's names.
Make sure to
identify each item/section you contribute. Use highlighting, different font colors, or labels to clarify.
Include background information on your topic(s). Use acceptable print and non-print sources (.edu, .org, .gov preferably), and cite accordingly using internal citations.
Find visual media (pictures, video, and sound) to enhance your page. Use acceptable non-print sources (.edu, .org, .gov preferably), and cite accordingly using internal citations.
Show how the topic connects to current or other historical events (to world), other pieces of literature (text to text), or you personally (to self).
Create a link
from your topic page
to another WIKI
outside web source
Tie your topic(s) to Health and Social Education. Here is a link to IBO for further clarification:
Tie your topic(s) to at least one IB Learner Profile Trait. Here is a link to IBO for further clarification:
Edit your page for spelling, grammar, mechanics, and page layout/organization.
Provide a Works Cited page that includes all sources used. This should match your internal citations and ensure you do not plagiarize.
View at least 6 other TKAM milieu pages, and provide positive feedback through the discussion thread, starting with the ones with no positive feedback yet. :) Label the subject line of this message "positive feedback" so that the other students andI can see it easily.
