Creative Minds                           To Writing Centers

 . . . A Wiki for writers who collaborate to create great writing!

Martin Luther King Jr   (a KWL . . . setting goals and objectives)

This collaborative writing project will give you a chance to write about what you know, what you want to know and what you have learned about Martin Luther King Jr.


Guidelines for collaborative writing projects:

* Meet your deadline!

* All members of your group must participate in contributing to the writing project.

* Each person(s) in your group must have a responsibility:

        - Group facilitator (keep the group on task!)

        - editor (click edit page to begin; only one person at a time can edit a wiki page)

        - reader (read out loud any content that all must hear)

        - brainstormers (generate ideas)

        - conventions monitors (check for clarity, spelling, etc.)

Each time you participate in a collaborative writing project, you must have a different role!


  How to begin:


Add what you already know about Martin Luther King, then write about what you would like to learn. 

This will help us set goals for our learning. After our study of Martin Luther King, we will then add what we learned.
