Technology, Rare Earth, and Facebook


This Wiki page was created by the 11th grade Reading and Writing class taught by Mr. Cody Houser and Mr. Ron Snyder at The Neighborhood Academy. The wiki page is based off of all the materials that we have learned this year. the first thing it will display is a timeline of all the important inventors and inventions that the 11th grade class has learned about. Each link will lead to information dedicated to that specific inventor and invention, made and published by a member of the class.Another focus of the 11th grade reading and writing class is the world wide effects of rare earth metals. We learned about the trade between various countries of rare earth and how it affects each of them economically, socially, and personally.There is a link at the bottom of this page that will lead you to those pages on this subject.The last research project of ours was on the topic of facebook. We watched the movie Social Network and saw how facebook came to be. We then did research on just how popular Facebook is and the effects it's growth is having on the world as well as where Facebook is going to go next. There is also a link for the pages on this subject at the bottom of this page.
