wikiscriptScript writing with wiki: What's a wiki? It's a Web page on which all users can add, change, or delete text and other content as they wish. You don't need any special software to use a wiki. Students in grades 6th - 8th will be able to utilize technology to develop language arts and visual arts activities. Students use a wiki -- a Web site that allows users to add and edit content collectively -- to write a one-act play. 

Think Tank: is designed to help students develop a Research Organizer (a list of topics and subtopics) for reports and projects. Based on the subject assigned, the students can refine it by choosing from a variety of suggestions and by using a random subtopic generator.
