Wikipedia Assignment

As the first step in our Wikipedia assignment, I would like you to identify a wikipedia stub related to poetry that needs to be expanded. In wikipedia parlance, a “stub” is a page that is underdeveloped and needs to be expanded.

Here’s the list of pages you should explore and choose from:

Poetry stubs

Poem stubs

Poet stubs

In your blog post, identify the stub you’d like to expand and do some preliminary research in the City Tech library catalogue and journal databases to try to find some sources that might help you learn more about the subject you’ve chosen.

Please note the following two aspects of this assignment:

1. It is meant to help you engage the library as a resource. Therefore, your work on the wiki page should rely on at least two sources found through the library catalogue and/or journal databases. It would be a good idea to check out a book.

2. Please do not edit wikipedia yet. We’re going to go through a few drafts in this space before updating wikipedia.

If you have any questions, please leave them below.
