The unit page is a key part of a classroom web site

A wiki-hosted classroom web site has many functions. One that is often unnoticed is the unit page.

The classroom web site unit page consists of all of all the necessary items a teacher would keep in a folder on a unit of study. What is particularly nice about a unit page on a wiki site is that any item can be linked. So, if other lesson pages relevant to a specific unit have been created, the teacher simply links to those pages on the unit page.

Other forms of enrichment for the unit, such as video, audio or guidelines, can also be maintained on the unit page for quick reference for students and parents.

With a wiki-hosted unit page, the need for folders and paper is eliminated.

Welcome to a truly all-inclusive wiki and to the paperless classroom.
