Is Wikipedia a Good Source?
Use Wikipedia to find a subject on which you believe you have some level of expertise. You will read it critically and answer the following questions:
1.What sources are used on the entry? Check 2-3 of them. Are they reliable? How did you check their reliability?
2. Did you notice any missing information, or any information that was left un-cited or flagged as unreliable? Provide an example.
3. Did you notice any information that was surprisingly good? Was it cited? Provide an example.
4. Finally, end with a paragraph that summarizes your assessment of the Wikipedia entry based upon your expertise.
