Using Galleries[edit | edit source]

I notice that you have several images on your page. It may be useful to organize them in a gallery. The format is quite simple:

The following captioned gallery was added to this page using this syntax:

<gallery caption="Data set 1;Valentine's Day snow storm 2007, South Burlington Vermont">
Image:315Small Snow.jpg|Figure 1. Snow accumulation at 3:15 during a snowstorm on Feb 14 2007 in South Burlington Vermont USA; click to view closer
Image:345 smallSnow.jpg|Figure 2. Snow accumulation at 3:45; click to view closer.
Image:415 smallSnow.jpg|Figure 3. Snow accumulation at 4:15; click to view closer.
</gallery>

Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Gallery}}''from your page.

Final edits

Hi folks,

this one is a little sparse. Some suggestions to improve it:

Pictures[edit | edit source]

This lesson plan desperately needs photographs illustrating the concepts. The lesson works very well, but photographs would illustrate to other teachers just how well it works. Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Pictures}}''from your page.

All materials are still around and could easily be photographed and uploaded. If you do this then follow these guidelines:

Formatting figures[edit | edit source]

Any photograph, map, diagram, or handout that is embedded in your wiki counts as a figure. Tables should be handled differently.

Adding numbered captions to your figures can simplify your writing. You can refer a reader to a picture as simply as this: (Fig 1). No need to say see below or to the right of this text, particularly when the figure may move depending on the window size in which the page is viewed. So, I suggest captions like this: Figure 1. Enough detail following the figure number to orient the reader to the image. Figure captions do not work well in the Rich Text editor, so it may be worth turning that off to edit captions. The following image and caption was added to this page using this syntax:[[Image:RainbowHypothesis.jpg|Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses|thumb]]

Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses

Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Figures}}''from your page.

Work on reflections and citations please

You need a link to the educational standards by number.
