Assignment - Add to an article

Familiarize yourself with editing Wikipedia by adding a citation to an article. There are two ways you can do this:

  • Add a paragraph-worth of text to a course-related article, and cite that statement to a reliable source, as you learned in the online training.
  • You should have at least four sources in your addition.
  • If appropriate, these additions could be in different parts of the article.
  • When you make a small claim, clearly state the fact in your own words, and then cite the source where you found the information.
  •  The Citation Hunt tool shows unreferenced statements from articles. First, evaluate whether the statement in question is true! An uncited statement could just be lacking a reference or it could be inaccurate or misleading. Reliable sources on the subject will help you choose whether to add it or correct the statement.
