My role in your class

I am going to be in your class many times this fall to support you with your WIkipedia assignment.  We will be covering the following:

  • setting up a Wikipedia account and writing and editing articles
  • doing research on the Web and in the library for sources for your article
  • evaluating sources for credibilty and "notability" (Wikipedia's criteria for publishing articles)
  • exploring systemic biases in how information is created and shared 

Here are a few things you should know:

  • I am here to help you learn about college-level research. I understand learning doesn't work the same way for everyone, and that learning these skills and habits of mind takes time and lots of practice.. I want you to feel comfortable reaching out for help during and after our classes together, and confident about using this guide throughout the semester.
  • I do my best to foster an inclusive classroom environment to ensure that all of you are respected, safe and supported in your learning. If there is anything I can do to better support you, please let me know.
