Welcome to Contemporary English


This is the place to gather information if you got lost on the subway, were kidnapped by aliens, forgot your book on another planet, are bored of looking at Myspace pages, ran out of music on your iPod, already text messaged everyone in your phone book five times, were wondering what your teacher's name was, figured you might want to catch up since there's only a few months left till graduation, or if you were simply absent yesterday.


You are welcome to peruse and offer your comments and ideas. But I would ask that you keep it appropriate, thoughtful, and useful. If for example you hate Snow Falling on Cedars, I probably already know. What might be helpful is offering suggestions for other books that might fill the same time period or race issue we have been discussing. Or you might also offer suggestions for different assignments/projects that might be more useful, relevant, or beneficial to your enjoyment (or at least tolerance) of the literature we are reading.


I would also love ideas for additional pages to add to this wiki. Some of you are real technology pros and others of you are super creative and super funny. I would like to exploit your minds to make this a unique and interesting place to be.



Things to know about this wiki

  1. This wiki is semi-public, meaning that the general public can read, but not edit, any entry. Therefore, do not put anything on this wiki that you would not be comfortable with the general public seeing.
  2. Anyone with the wiki password can edit any entry on this wiki -- in other words, any of the 160 students in Contemporary English, along with Mrs. Trykar. However, the "History" section of each page not only shows who has edited which entry, but allows earlier versions to be restored. Any malicious editing or inappropriate additions are, therefore, not in your best interest as they will be quickly discovered and dealt with immediately. 
  3. This wiki is not hosted through El Dorado's servers. It may be available at times when EDHS servers are down; the opposite may also occur. Plan for technology to fail at inconvenient times, and you will always be ahead of the game.
