If you’re teaching a composition course and need inspiration for article topics to improve, one popular idea is to encourage student editors to add information to Wikipedia about their hometowns. Perhaps the town lacks demographic data from the most recent census or information about the education system. This can also be a useful first step for a longer Wikipedia assignment, and it typically gives student editors the opportunity to add images.
In Matthew Vetter’s Writing and Rhetoric course, student editor Allyleah817 took such an approach when she expanded the article about Vinton County, Ohio. Check out her work and learn more about the least populous county in Ohio.
