Week 4: Using sources

Professor Ruppel makes sure she’s weaving a discussion of Wikipedia into her course throughout the semester to help the students connect their assignment to the themes of the course as a whole.

She also explains to the class the policies around plagiarism and copyright violations, including the subtler forms such as using shorter phrases without attribution or beginning from a copied text and simply rewording it while leaving the structure and meaning intact (i.e., close paraphrasing).

In the course readings so far, the class has gone over a lot of material on its topic that isn't covered very well on Wikipedia. To get the hang of using citations on Wikipedia, students are assigned to add some new information to a Wikipedia article of their choice—backed up with a citation to one of the readings.
