  5. 5. Basic Stuff Today: Lines and Words <ul><li>Find your terms in the vocabulary spreadsheet. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure they are spelled correctly, punctuated correctly, and have references if needed. </li></ul><ul><li>Copy terms (control+C) from Google Docs and paste (control+V) into the wiki. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure there are lines separating each entry. </li></ul><ul><li>Make it look nice: Bold the words with heading fonts (select term and click desired heading) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Beyond Lines and Words <ul><li>Any time after basic term and chapter one term entry may be used to put other features into the wiki for the different entries. </li></ul>
