On Tuesday, March 25, we went to Greenbelt Middle School for our third session. This session was focused on researching Wikipedia.com for potential research subjects. We gave them time to research what they are interested in. The girl researched everything from favorite bands to potential career paths. We then had an in-depth discussion on what they saw about Wikipedia posts, what were the different parts of Wikipedia posts, and what type of information was on the posts they researched. We discussed how they would set up their own wikis and what types of information they need to provide. We set them up on the wiki site and had them start their pages!
