This is the online space for students in Mrs. Maine's classes at Punxsutawney Area High School to learn, discuss issues, keep up with class deadlines, and collaborate with other students on class projects. Check here for assignments that are due and links to classroom and assignment materials that can be downloaded and viewed with Adobe pdf. To email, access the class web page for the email link.

Think of this wiki as a shared online whiteboard. Your entire group can obtain and share information using this wiki, making your information accessible to everyone. Comments can be added to a page. Be sure to make a comment on a discussion on the correct page.

Rules for creating notes:

1. Only post meaningful, relevant information on your topic.
2. Summarize all information found on the Net and link to it. Regurgitation is not cool (even if it is spitting back actual text).
3. Continue to read your topic and ask -- "What do I not understand about this?" Proceed to answer that question and post your findings. Make it make sense and be able to explain it. I want to know what you THINK.
4. Use some of the websites you read about.
5. Do not delete information of another group unless it is redundant or it needs to be edited to make it better. Remember the difference between collaborating and vandalism.
6. You may be asked to summarize your information in class.

Creating anchors: From wikispaces

An anchor is a way to link one part of a page to another. They are often used at the top of a page so that people can jump directly to a section that is farther down without having to scroll to find it.

Anchors have 2 parts.

Part 1: The anchor point. i.e. The place you are linking to.
1. Go to the part of the page where you want the link to jump to (usually located farther down the page).
2. Type in . Type the brackets and the # sign. Replace nameoftheanchor with the actual text you want to be the name of the anchor. For example, we could use

Part 2: The link.
1. At the top of the page (or wherever you want your anchor link list to appear), highlight the text that you want to use as your link.
2. Click on the link button in the toolbar (it looks like a globe). For Page Name, select the name of the page you want to link to. This is most often going to be the page you are currently working on.
3. Click the "Link to anchor?" link, which will then display a box into which you can type the anchor name. So in the example above, you would type the word classification in to the Anchor box, since this is what you put inside the anchor code [[#]] in Part 1.
