Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organise information in articles related to Homeschooling. If you would like to help, please enquire on the talk page. New members are welcome to join, and update the to-do list. The associated talk page serves as a forum for related collaboration of articles within the project's scope.


Searchtool.svg Scope[edit]

This WikiProject's scope includes anything that has to do with homeschooling. Articles within this project's scope are assessed by quality and importance boundaries, when the WikiProject Homeschooling template is placed on those articles.

  • The importance scale will assess articles based upon their importance as it relates to the WikiProject. For example, an article about a person who was or is homeschooled would be within this project's "scope", but it would not be as high on the importance scale as the Homeschooling article itself.
  • The quality scale determines the article's quality, how well it is written, and the length of the article, regardless of how it is ranked on the importance scale. In the event that the article is within the scope of multiple WikiProjects, the article should usually receive the quality assessment grade by all of the WikiProjects.

Gnome globe current event.svg Newsroom[edit]

The newsroom publishes our project's monthly newsletter, which contains information on our project, members, and collaboration information.

Collaboration[edit]

The Collaboration department seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every month, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards. Any articles dealing with some aspect of Homeschooling are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.

Inviting Members

The list below contains links to templates to recruit people for WikiProject Homeschooling. You can use them based upon whether the user is a homeschooler, interested in homeschooling, a WikiProject Alternative Education member, or a WikiProject Education member.

In those pages you will find instructions for adding the message to a user's talk page. Because we don't want users to get multiple messages, if you plan on helping to recruit members, please be sure to leave a note on our project's talk page and say you are doing so. It is also good to check the user's talk page before adding the template to the page. Also make sure you add a header on top of the message, as that is not included in the template.
