For starters, we set up new wikis for groups ready to begin a literature circle, and I'll ensure all the students in the group have access to the wiki. Group members consult the main literature circle page to find out what is required on their wikis, and they use the discussion tab for online conversations about the books they're reading. The really fun part is setting up the wiki page and embedding a variety of media to help describe our books and entice others to read and discuss them.
Wikis remain private, accessible and editable only by group members, until they are ready for publication. When we are sure everything on the pages is appropriate, proofread, and all the proper citations included, we lock all the pages (so they can't be edited further) and make the cite accessible to everyone in the world. Visitors can view all our work and discussions, and we even set up our wikis so that those with a wikispace account can add to the discussions we've already begun.
