Term papers as Wikipedia Articles
Martha Groom at the University of Washington-Bothell, is one a handful of college educators embracing Wikipedia. The vast majority of teachers (I speak from very personal experience) forbid using Wikipedia as a source and many times brush it off, since it isn’t ‘sanctioned’.
Professor Groom goes another step forward and has her kids writing in depth, well researched articles that are published on Wikipedia in lieu of term papers. As an added bonus she has thousands of other users unknowingly helping out with the grading process as one can easily track edits on information that the student didn’t get quite right.
