A Successful Wiki Page: Criteria for Wiki Assignments
Wikipedia Entry Page: Wikipedia
A successful wiki page . . .
A well-formed wiki page has documentation as part of its end matter (note that this documentation supplements the article, not replaces it):
- Starts with a TITLE and an INTRODUCTION --offering a summary of the major issue and purpose of the page, in one or two paragraphs, max.
- Has, if it's about a person, issue, or institution, a thumbnail bio or timeline in a box on the right-hand side.
- Has after the introduction a table of contents of each section, indicating the relation of topics and sub-topics
- Often has a "related topics" box, showing where the topic exists among others normally around it; often has footnotes annotating texts with major contributions.
- Is almost always told in chronological order.
- Has links to other pages from all the major concepts in the text
- Is edited collaboratively and politely, supplementing and querying authors to come to a consensus
How to Make A Wiki:
- Notes to the text, in proper MLA format
- where primary literature exists in online archives
- where significant secondary literature exists online
- A bibliography of the text sources for the article (in proper MLA style)
- A "see also" section that includes complete information:
NOTE THAT I WILL EXPECT BRIEF ANNOTATIONS ON THE "See also" section, since that contributes to your final class project
- Introductions and reference books on the article topic
- Practice: where you find examples of the topic in use, such as professional organizations, conferences, list-servs, and journals dealing with the topic
- Standard critical discussions of the topic
- Sources for bibliographic information on the topic (bibliographic data bases)
