Medical Miracles: Instructions

Getting Started...

This is an independent project that will focus on different advancements in medicine. There have been many innovations that have changed the way we look at healthcare and how we approach different patients and diseases.  You will pick one topic that interests you and make a website or guide with specific headings.  Ms. Cowell in the IMC will walk you through the different components of research and what needs to be included on your final project.  Throughout the project it is expected that you do ‘senior level’ research and stay on task throughout the process.

As a contributor, your name has been added to the LibGuides CMS as a regular guide.  You will be able to create this (and other guides) for review and publication upon approval.  

Identify Your Topic

  1. Select a topic from the timeline or choose another with teacher approval.
  2. Provide Mrs. Cowell with your name, as well as the year and name of your topic.

Create Your Guide

  1. Log into the system and select "Create Guide."
  2. For this guide, select "Medical Miracles" under "group assignment."  
  3. Select "Copy content / layout from an existing guide" and navigate to the guide "Medical Miracles - Template" under "Guides at my Institution."  
  4. Name your guide the topic/medical miracle you have chosen.
  5. Leave other settings at default and click on the blue button "Create Guide."

Rename Your Main Page

  1. Your guide should have the name you assigned.  You can correct this if your topic doesn not appear as the title.
  2. Rename your main page "A Learning Guide."  

Organize Your Guide

  1. Create a new page and name it "Sandbox."  Select the option to hide the page from public viewing.  This will be your space to gather information, play with features, etc.
  2. You should use the template to determine what information is required in your guide.  You may elect to move this content onto seperate pages or keep it within the default format.  

Publishing Your Guide

  1. You can preview your guide at anytime.
  2. When your guide is complete, notify your teacher that you would like to be graded.  She will publish the guide to the public space.  

NOTE:  Mrs. Cowell will stay during OVERTIME, as able, upon request.  Please let her know if you will need this support.
