Each spring, English I students at Durham School of the Arts edit, improve, and sometimes create Wikipedia pages on YA novels or other bildungsroman.

Background[edit]

This project was inspired by Duke University professor Cathy Davidson, who wrote about the success of the project.

Resources for Students[edit]

Extra Credit[edit]

  • Wikify: Create internal links to other Wikipedia pages. Also, create links from other Wikipedia pages (for instance, the author's page) to your novel. Read about what words to wikify.
  • Article template: Check out this recommended novel template to see what your page is missing, especially regarding categories (at the bottom of the page).
  • Infobox: If your article does not have one already, think about adding an infobox using {{Infobox book}}
  • Book cover image: This is especially difficult, since you need to find an image within the Wikipedia image use policy guidelines. If you have questions, consult the Wikipedia Missing Manual (at school) or seek some Chatroom help (below).

Basic Help[edit]

  • Style guidelines: Use the Novel style guidelines as your go-to resource to help you write your article.
  • Chatroom help: Go to this chatroom to get help from Wikipedia Ambassadors who are just waiting to help you. When you log in, you should type your Username under "Nickname."
  • Citation made easy: Cite your sources easily (and without having to sing a song) using citation templates.
  • Good article examples: A listing of books that have "good" articles according to Wikipedia.
  • Edit summary language: Fill in the Edit summary box using shorthand from this guide.
  • Stub tag: If your page is a stub, add this tag to the bottom of the page: {{YA-novel-stub}}
  • Word count: Aim to make your plot summary less than 600 words and by no means longer than 1,000 words. Count your words here.
  • Wikiproject:Novels: A group of Wikipedia editors focused on writing and improving articles about novels. Lots of good resources on their main page, and links to their talk pages where assistance can be requested.
  • WikiProject Children's literature: Another related wikiproject. Similar to the group just above, but with a narrowed focus of attention.
  • A note to young editors

Template[edit]

Please make sure that the template at the top of the talk page for each of your articles works. If not, you can copy this one.
