Before you get started, please work together to create a main page with all of the Spanish-speaking countries so that visitors can navigate easily throughout your wiki. You will be working collaboratively on all of the country pages. Everyone's contributions are valuable, so por favor, be respectful of work that your peer has done. If you have an idea on how to improve on something, you should discuss it as a group and make the best decision for the group. You will be receiving an individual grade according to your participation, contributions and quality of work. The class will also receive a grade for the whole wiki, so work cooperatively and put forth your best effort! Remember, the whole world will see your wiki, so you want it to be the best that it can be. Also, be sure to cite all of your sources.
