Introduction


For this project, you will be creating several wiki pages (pages similar to this one) about an important 20th century African American or Latino someone who has contributed to history in a way that find interesting. In the process, you will be learning several research skills:
  • How to use some of the BHS library's research tools
  • How to use a great note-taking program called "Noodletools"
  • How to build a wiki
  • How to use Diigo, a web-based tool for posting notes on web pages for note taking and for commenting on others' work

[For a model of this project--but focusing on historical events rather than biographies--you can check out the wiki site the 9th grade AASP class made last year (2008-2009)]
