Lesson Plan: Using wikipedia

This PDF is my lesson outline for teaching students how to read a wiki - it is quite utilitarian in nature - we don't talk about evaluating information, or triangulating sources. Instead, this lesson is about the nuts and bolts of using Wikipedia. It presumes the teacher has a moderate amount of knowledge in using Wikipedia. I'm encouraging teachers to use our school wiki for written assignments instead of written papers. This lesson is part of my effort.
