How is this intended to be different from an encyclopedia article? The Jade Knight (d'viser) 06:24, 21 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Instead of providing a lot of information about the man, as an encyclopedia article would do, these lessons are intended to focus on the term of presidency and place them in context of US and World events. At present, I'm simply trying to flesh out the pages enough to provide summary information. The overall objective is to provide an introductory course to US History that will use the Presidents as a mnuemonic device, versus mundane memorization of lists and dates. Long term, the personalities and policies of the individual's should be added to show how they shaped history. Sri-ganesh 18:22, 21 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sounds like a good idea. Try to make a particular effort while you're at it to focus on participation, instead of simply information—without participatory elements, this may as well be a Wikibook. The Jade Knight (d'viser) 07:40, 22 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
