Subject: Anthropology education wiki
Hi all - I've become part of the Amer Anthrop Ass Anthropology Ed
Committee. We're experimenting with a wiki to provide resources for
teaching anthropology and I've added a link about the shipwreck website
developed by my friend Ellen Bedell of the Ellis School in Pittsburgh.
If you would like to join in here's the instructions: The shipwreck
link is under k-12 traditional subjects.
Anthropology Education Center Wiki
Welcome to the AAA Anthropology Education Committee's wiki for the
development of the Anthropology Education Center. The strength of this
resource depends on the contributions of its members. You must be a
member to contribute, but getting membership is easy!

2) Email anthroed@... and we'll create a username and password for

Editing is as simple as clicking on the "edit" button and using the
icons in the editor. One comforting fact about wikis is that all
versions of a page prior to your edit are saved. We can always back up
to the previous version. Use the Sandbox

experiment with editing. Click on "help" above to get more instructions
