Success: My Wiki


#1

Section 1

Montessori education

This Wikipedia page is about Montessori education. I find this interesting because I am doing research about preschool curriculum and I’ve heard the name but never understood what a Montessori was. Montessori education is for 2-6 year old children that learn under the constructivist or “discovery” model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction.

Head Start

This is a Wikipedia page about Head Start. Head Start provides early childhood education for low income families. This is also helpful in my research for preschool curriculum because it is a preschool program that uses curriculum.

Early Childhood

This is a link to a Wikipedia page about Early Childhood Education. Since that is my major I thought that this sight would be helpful because it has different theories of teaching such as Learning through Play. As well as theories of child development by Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, John Dewey and Lucy Sprague Mitchell.

Section 2

I chose this link that has the difference between revisions on elephants. I chose elephants because they are one of my favorite animals and an unofficial symbol of my sorority. Delta women collect elephants since one of the founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. was fond with the animal. So they collect elephants as a tribute to their founders. Elephants can represent strength, patience, dignity, power, royalty and pride.

Section 3 This is the URL to my Wiki

https://wikispaces.com/join/F3TNJNR

And put in F3TNJNR for the code. It will expire July 14th so hurry!

I was looking for three wikis, not Wikipedia entries. E.g., Broward County, Florida’s. This is not an especially great wiki, but it should give you an idea what you’re looking for.

Also, I was looking for a link to two versions of a Wikipedia page side-by-side.

Nice work including the code in the URL!

O ok I see. Let me change it.

This is a link to a Wikipedia page about Early Childhood Education. Since that is my major I thought that this sight would be helpful because it has different activities you can choose from. It also has tools like a free fraction tool to use for math.

@pfaffman Sorry for the misunderstanding. Is this correct?

This looks good.

You could have edited your original post rather than making a new reply as you did. This is fine, though I am working on a system that will assign “badges” when I “like” your completion. My system falls apart (a little) with this, as if I like your original post (that I don’t really like) then others might get confused that the original one was considered a success. I’m not quite sure what to do about that.

My Wiki Assignment Part 2 is now complete. We have edited each others work. I had the pleasure of working with @lmccall06 and @jordanedm510 and they were wonderful group members. Wikis are actually really cool and are a really good way to create a group project when all of the group members aren’t in the same place. I really enjoyed this assignment. This is where my wiki is located https://wikispaces.com/join/F3TNJNR.
