Welcome to the Beaver Country Day School America Literature: English 10 Wiki

America is the great melting pot, right? Well, that simplistic figure is inadequate
to describe the varied, dynamic, and fascinating amalgamation that is our nation,
but it could work well to capture the essence of a Wiki. Wikis, and other web 2.0
technologies, allow for a namerica_1205741_27111092.jpgew form of collaboration unavailable to us until recent years.

We'll use this technology to help us add a new dimension to our study of American
Literature and to make connections between sections and with the world outside of
Beaver Country Day School.

Students are reminded this Wiki is a classroom space, just like our physical classroom;
the same expectations of decorum, respect, and honesty apply here.
