    • Use the template "Michigan Places."
    • Tags: engage, miplaces, your username
    • When you create your page, immediately change the title from "Name of Place" to the name of your place. Remember to capitalize!
    • Save!
  2. Visit the website (see below) that is specific to your place. Read and explore the site to learn about the place.
  3. Take notes on a separate sheet of paper or at the bottom of your wiki page. Remember that you only have to take notes on fact-based information. You will form your own opinions about this place on your own!
