- We'll web working with wikis for the next few weeks. We'll be looking at a few, writing a little about them, but mainly, you'll be contributing to this wiki. It serves us best to start slow, however, rather than jumping into the fire: Read first, wiki second. So for this week work with the reading and writing activities in PreparingForWikis.
- There's a single post due for Sunday midnight, but you might want to make a few shorter posts over the week.

==== posted on Sun 22 Feb ====
**Before Tuesday, class time.**

=== Set up your WikiName page ===
Download and print out two pages. You'll want to be able to refer to the tutorial as you register for the wiki.

- [[ Getting Started on the Wiki Tutorial]]. PDF. The invitation code will be posted on D2L.
- SettingUpAWikiNamePage.

Now follow the tutorial and get registered for the wiki and your wiki name page set up.
- Get started on the exercise before class so we can address any problems on Tues, 24 Feb.

==== for week of 24 Feb - 3 Mar ====
- for reference: PreparingForWikis, GettingTheWikiAttitude
- WritingTheWiki2015. Sentences About. Work with pages a number of times through the week.
- Post a weekly **reflection to your blog** by midnight Monday.

==== 3 Mar ====
- a look at WritingTheWiki2015. Sentences About
- How it went, what you selected, choices, concerns
- Use of wikis. Anxieties regarding wikis.

The role of the writer on the wiki
- GrowingTheWiki means nurturing and fertilizing pages. Revising to connect and open ideas further.
- We will consider some strategies, then proceed to the micro-exercise for Thursday.

==== Micro-exercise: Due R, 6:00 pm ====
Recall that WikisAreSocial. Recall on a wiki EverythingIsInterTwingled. Recall that MeaningIsConnection and ConnectionIsMeaning.

Return to the pages you created or worked on, and revise - add to - refactor - create stubs - work below the DoubleLine - to do two things

1. Link the page with other pages on this wiki by adding WikiWords in appropriate places. You will need to find other pages to link to (Use Search, consult PageIndex, have another look at the SentencesAboutWritingTheWiki page, read other pages).
2. To open the page to further additions / changes by others. CreatingStubs is a good way. WikiCharming is another.

This exercise need not take long (30 minutes), but the more inviting you are, the better the health of the wiki.

=== Final clean up===
- We don't use all caps in titles or headings on this wiki. See HeadingCase. When you see heads in all caps, edit them to the proper case.
