Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I am really looking forward to meeting all of you at Glacial Park Conservation Area in McHenry County, near the town of Ringwood,
on Sunday, 6 November, at 9:00 AM at the visitor center. This park brochure includes general information, a map to help you get to the park,
and even GPS coordinates for the entrance (in case you, unlike me, have the technology to rely upon!).
Looks like it will be a beautiful day to be in the field!
is up and running, and is ready for you to sign up for a project topic and
read all the project details.
You will need to sign on to the wiki, and check that you have full access to the editing functions. In order to do that, you will need to do the following:
If you have any problems accessing the wiki, or with other aspects of this project, send me an email or talk to me after class, and we will sort it out.
1. If you already have a google
account, go to step 2. If you do not have a google account, you
first need to create one, as follows:
2. Send me an email, from the account that you used to create your google account. As the subject, please use "Glacial - wiki account". I will add your email address as a collaborator for the google site. Send the email to my NEIU email address! And identify yourself by name in the email!
3. After I have added your email address as a
collaborator for the wiki, you will receive an email notification
that you have been added. Click on the link in that email:
it will take you to the log-in page for google sites. (If you are using neiu email,
right-click the link and choose "open in new window". For some reason,
this makes a difference!)
5. Information about the project is on the home page of the wiki. At the upper left of the home page are links to the other wiki pages, including "topics" - where you will sign up for your project topic. Please note that if someone else has already signed up for the same topic, you will need to pick something different!
6. Along the way, if you need help on any aspect, including how to choose a topic, how to create the desired format for your project, or other aspects of your project, I would be happy to consult with you!
7. When you complete your project, it will be
submitted via the wiki: you will upload your completed project to the
"Project Documents" page. Your classmates' projects will be there,
too: hopefully you will take a little time to browse the information that
