Lesson Plans that really worked!

Wikis as a tool for Professional Learning Communities
I made this Technical Writing in CTE Wiki to teach the career teachers about integrating writing into the curriculum. It is a great way to build collaboration and keep the documents, objectives and activities organized and accessible. Take a look: http://technicalwritingincte.wikispaces.com/

Another Teacher/Librarian created wiki can be found at http://spartanlinks.wikispaces.com/. For this project, when we created a collaborative handout, we also posted the information online on the wiki. The goal was to give students access off campus even if they lost their handouts and to eliminate long URL addresses that were often typed in incorrectly. The wiki has expended exponentially over the course of two years.
