How Does This Work?
This site allows teachers to post their lesson plans and resources and to work collaboratively to refine and perfect them. Almost every page on this site can be edited by any registered user. If you haven't registered yet, you can do so by clicking here. The front page can only be edited by the webmaster, and the Practice page can be edited by anyone, even if you haven't registered.
I want to encourage everyone who has something to contribute to learn how to use the website, but if for some reason you're unable to post resources yourself, you can email them to me at email@example.com and I will post them as soon as I can. Try to include a sentence of explanation that I can also post.
TO EDIT A PAGE: Go to the page you want to modify and click 'Page: Edit' on the right-hand menu. The contents of the page will then pop up with a toolbar at the top. Make changes just like you would in a word processor, and click 'save' at the bottom when you finish.
TO CREATE A NEW PAGE: Click 'Page: New' and enter the name of the new page. (It helps if you capitalize appropriately, because this will become both the URL and the title at the top of the page. You can't use spaces.) Then just make sure you create a link to your new page from the appropriate existing page, such as Middle School Math. (To make a link, highlight the text, click the chain-link icon from the editing toolbar, and type in the page you want to link to.)
ATTACHMENTS: You can post attachments to the site. Here's how: Log in and go to the page you want to attach files to. Click 'Attachments' under the word 'Page' at the top right corner of the screen. (Be sure not to click 'Menu-Attachments'.) Upload a file just like you would an attachment at a web-based email service. Your file will appear at the bottom of the page. You can also create a link to the attachment from within the text of the page.
MACS: The editme software doesn't work on the Explorer or Safari browsers for Mac, but it does work on Firefox for Mac.
IF YOU ARE PASTING FROM MICROSOFT WORD: Paste your text into Notepad or Wordpad first, then copy and past again onto the website. Otherwise, weird things will happen to the formatting.
PRACTICE: Go to the practice editing page to try out the features with out messing anything up. You don't have to register to use this page.
TO LEARN MORE: Poke around the site, or go straight to help.editme.com. For some less technical guidelines for using the site, go to Posting Guidlines.To learn more about Wikis, read this article from Wikipedia. Or just look around Wikipedia for that matter.
