Hi folks,

Spelling[edit | edit source]

Your page contains spelling errors. To improve it, please spell check. If you use Firefox, it contains a spell checker. Alternatively, edit the entire page, copy and paste the content into a word processing document, fix the spelling (being careful not to change any formats in the document, and then paste it back into the wiki. Don't forget to save your changes! Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Spell}}''from your page.

Use a big 6 by 6 table for the materials for the student groups. There is a table button in the rich text editor.

Let's get some suggestions for objects to use in place of the heart diagram.

Let's get a citation for the literature connection into the citations section along with a biology text for the body systems. Format:

Formatting citations[edit | edit source]

To insure that a reader can reliably track down the specific book or article you intended, it is useful to provide the following information:

  • Author(s) (last name followed by first initials; secondary authors: initials followed by last name); year; Book title or article title; publisher (for books) or Periodical title (for articles); volume and page numbers (both for articles)

Formatted examples:

  • Brown, M.W. and C. Hurd. 1947. Goodnight Moon. Harper.
  • Bentley, W.A. 1905. Studies of raindrops and raindrop phenomena. Monthly weather review. 32. 450

Once changes have been made, delete the following text: {{citations}}

For your links, 2 things matter: 1. they should not interrupt the flow of your main text. 2. they should appear expanded in full in your citations section so that when printed they are usable. You should add some more resources in terms of connections to other lessons (within WE and to other locations). Look for solid material for each of the body systems. Format:

Formatting links[edit | edit source]

There are a few ways to create links to external web sites in the wiki.

Descriptive option for use in text[edit | edit source]

The best type of link for most situations includes a description of the linked site. This description appears as the title of the link e.g. Useful Web Site. To create a link like this just type a link and the description, separated by a space and enclosed in single square brackets: [http://www.exelearning.org Useful Web Site]. This will create a link to the Useful Web Site that appears like this: Useful Web Site and should be used in conjunction with the full citation in literature cited.

Footnote format[edit | edit source]

Enclosing the link in single square brackets without providing a description: [http://www.exelearning.org] ...will display the link as a number in brackets, like this: [1]. This format looks like a footnote and it should be used in conjunction with numbered full citations in literature cited.

For your citations section[edit | edit source]

Type in the full URL for the link: http://www.exelearning.org The wiki treats this text as a link like this: http://www.exe.learning.org and will display full web address. Use this format in your citations section so that users can work from a printout if needs be; avoid using this format in the main text of your lesson. This material adapted from here Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Links}}''from your page.

Handouts[edit | edit source]

Lets get "lungs" into the circulatory handout; replace 'bad air' with 'carbon dioxide' on the respiratory handout. Nervous system handout: 'sent messages' instead of 'sends messages'. Replace 'Muscular tube that connects to the stomach' with 'Muscular tube that brings food to the stomach' because the duodenum is also a muscular tube connected to the stomach.

You need some pictures of the lesson in action. A final picture of the finished body would also be great.

Final Edits[edit | edit source]

Some tags were automatically added to your new page when it was established. Once you have made changes in response to the editorial suggestions you should remove them. Once they have been removed your assignment will be graded.

Tags to remove[edit | edit source]

Edit your page; turn off the rich text option and remove the following pieces of text: ''{{WIP}}'' ''{{S@W}}'' Once those tags have been removed, it will signal to others that you have made your contribution, and that they are welcome to modify your page and improve upon it.

Common mistakes section[edit | edit source]

If you have not already removed this section, do so now.
