Edublogs Awards

My APWH Wiki has been nominated as one of the best educational wikis for 2006. I am in amazing company – and really can’t compete with the likes of Vicki Davis and David Warlick.

The APWH wiki holds two projects I did with my AP World History classes last spring which I detailed in previous posts.

  • I talked about the AP World History Review Project here and here.
  • I talked about the Holocaust Wiki Project here.

My wiki is certainly modest in comparison, but (in an attempt of self promotion) it represents a couple project ideas that other teachers could realistically incorporate in their own classrooms. The other wikis in this category are generally bigger then life (which, don’t get me wrong, is amazing).

Anyway, if you would like to vote, you can click here.

  1. Beautiful writing. And though I knew the facts you state (Tolkien served in World War I, he lost many friends), I never quite put them together, the way you have.

    I am curious: what music did you use when teaching the unit?
    How (in general) did you approach it? Though I’m an elementary music teacher, I try to set the stage for later learning through utilizing music that will serve as cultural background for the material students will be learning later in other areas.
