# CREATE OR EXPAND A WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE
researchwrite:
title: "Create or expand a Wikipedia article"
description: [
"You guide your students to select course-related topics that are not well-covered on Wikipedia, and they work individually or in small teams to develop content — either expanding existing articles or creating new ones. Students analyze the current gaps, start their research to find high-quality secondary sources, and then consider the best way to organize the available information. Then it's time for them in turn to: propose an outline; draft new articles or new content for existing ones; provide and respond to peer feedback; and move their work into the live article namespace on Wikipedia."
"Along the way, students may work with experienced Wikipedia editors who can offer critical feedback and help make sure articles meet Wikipedia's standards and style conventions, and it's important to incorporate time into the assignment for the students to integrate those suggestions. Students who do great work may have their articles highlighted on Wikipedia's main page, and high quality articles will help inform thousands of future readers about the selected topic. "
"Optionally, you may ask your students to write a reflective paper about their Wikipedia experience, present their contributions in class, or develop their own conclusions and arguments in a supplementary essay."

# SOURCE-CENTERED ADDITIONS
sourcecentered:
title: "Source-centered additions"
description: [
"Students read Wikipedia articles in a self-selected subject area to identify articles in need of revision or improvement, such as those with \"citation needed\" tags. Students will find reliable sources to use as references for uncited content. This assignment includes a persuasive essay in which students make a case for their suggested changes, why they believe they are qualified to make those changes, and why their selected sources provide support. After making their contributions, students reflect on their work with a formal paper, and discuss whether they've accomplished their stated goals."
