The course mechanics

Eduzendium courses need a number of help pages in order to function properly within the Citizendium. The following instructions will guide you through the process of creating these pages. Pay special attention to bolded information just above the edit window. After each step, return to your course homepage and reload it to receive further instructions. You still need to create the following pages (when you see this section disappear, you are done):

*An EZnotice page does not exist yet. Please create it by clicking this link and saving the page.
*A template article does not exist yet. Please create it by clicking this link and saving the page.
*A metadata preload page does not exist yet. Please create it by clicking this link and saving the page.

Project Description

This Eduzendium project is the first of four components of a multi-genre research and writing project (described in full here). In addition to writing encyclopedia articles about individual interest groups, POL 214 students will write opinion essays that use their peers' encyclopedia articles as a research springboard, letters to the editor that respond to their peers' opinion essays, and compositions that reflect on their research and writing process. Grant funding to develop this project was provided by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology at Illinois State University.

What We'll Be Working On

The following is a list of articles that the members of POL 214 will be working on during the Fall 2009 semester. These articles will be closed to editing by other citizens until after the conclusion of the course, though we'd appreciate hearing any comments or suggestions you might have on their respective talk subpages.

For each of the articles you plan to have your students work on, please add a line of the form {{r_EZ|Title of your course's article 1}}, which will display as





etc.


Once the articles have been created, they will be listed here in the following formatting:
