Writing for Wikipedia

Base articles on reliable, independent, published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy. Source material must have been published, the definition of which for our purposes is "made available to the public in some form".

The best sources have a professional structure in place for checking or analyzing facts, legal issues, evidence, and arguments. The greater the degree of scrutiny given to these issues, the more reliable the source. 

Be especially careful when sourcing content related to living people or medicine.


Time to critique:

  1. Read the draft of a Wikipedia article
  2. Read the actual article
  3. Compare and contrast, what biographical info was left out? What was left in? Be prepared to share in class.
