This site, as is the case with all wikis, can be edited at any time by
anyone who is a member of the site
. All changes to the site are monitored to watch for online "vandalism." Wikis work by having many eyes review and refine each page so that they approach acceptable knowledge
. If you see an error, please fix it!
The information on this site, however, should always be considered a "work in progress."
It is intended that Rhode Island science teachers will be both the audience and authors of this resource. Except for the text of the GSEs, no content of this website should be seen as originating from or endorsed by URI or the Rhode Island Department of Education.
