This module goes into more detail on how Wikipedia is typically used in the classroom, with a term-long article writing project.
It includes ideas for how educators can use Wikipedia in the classroom, as well as specific Wikipedia assignments that can be adapted for a particular class. While this module focuses in particular on a full-term Wikipedia writing assignment—in which students create or expand an article on a topic that has weak coverage in Wikipedia to build a well-rounded, well-referenced encyclopedia article—there are many other ways to use Wikipedia.
Feel free to use ideas and materials as they, or modify them to fit your needs. You can also edit the content of this module, to reflect best practices for assignment design and how to work with educators.
