Week 5 - Final Paper

For your final project, you must apply the concepts and skills learned during this course by participating in the Wikipedia online community. Wikipedia is an open source; it is written, edited, and monitored by volunteers around the globe. The goal is to expand one of their stub articles by adding two subtopics to the article. A stub article is one that Wikipedia considers too short and does not provide detailed coverage of a subject or topic.

This project challenges you to apply the information literacy skills you learned in this course. To complete this project, you must find sources, evaluate their credibility, and cite them as you add information under each subtopic to expand the article. Once you submit your final project to Waypoint for grading, also consider sharing the information with the public by submitting your work to Wikipedia for publishing. It is an exciting way to join a scholarly conversation and add value to an ongoing discussion.
