Using Wikipedia

Using Wikipedia 

Wikipedia is a great place to get background information.

BUT anyone can add to Wikipedia so it's important to check your facts with other sources.

It's also a good place to find links to other sources of information.

If you are going to use Wikipedia: Remember to be a fact-checker. 

Start with C.A.R.S.

If you are searching for information on any open website, you need to become an expert fact-checker.

Remember anyone can put anything on the internet!

It is your responsibility not to put misinformation into your own work.

Here is a good place to start.

Then Do Some More Fact-Checking
