Navigate to blog homepage


This wiki is being designed in conjuction with a course that I am taking at Columbia University Teachers College. My course is entitled Computers, Problem Solving and Cooperative Learning. I will be examining how this forum lends itself to a cooperative learning environment. Please visit the related wiki pages in the following curriculum areas:

Wiki etiquette
This wiki page reviews the guidelines for wiki editing.
Immigration Wiki
This wiki page is part of a group project studying cooperative learning. The students will examine the topic of immigration as it relates to the four regions of the United States, North East, South East, South West and North West.
The essential questions within this study are:
  1. What are the different perspectives of immigration?
  2. Historically, how was immigration handled?
  3. How has immigration made the U.S. what it is today?
