Professor Ruppel realizes it’s critical to get the students working live on Wikipedia as soon as possible. She assigns students to move their work into Wikipedia, and to monitor them closely for any issues that come up. For the stronger student articles, Professor Ruppel encourages the students to write a short summary version to appear on Wikipedia's Main Page as hooks in the "Did you know..." (DYK) section. This gives students a chance to show their articles to a substantial audience and get feedback from Wikipedians, and works as a great momentum builder for the rest of the project.
Marguerite tries this. After she fixes a few issues pointed out by another editor, her new article is approved for the Main Page! Marguerite offers some help to a classmate, whose first try at starting an article ended up getting deleted.
