I teach students not to use "weasel words" in their collaborative writing. This includes things like "Many people say" or "it is widely thought" - these statements, unless backed up by a reliable source, lend credibility without fact backing them up. These are words that students should be familiarized with when writing for academic purposes in collaborative writing.

Teaching effective writing requires a lot of proofing, editing, feedback, and revision. What if you could harness the power of students, peer review, and Web 2.0 tools to supercharge your writing? You can. In addition to the traditional writing taught in classrooms, a new form of writing is here. Collaborative writing is fundamentally different from traditional essay writing in that students should know how to create content, edit, and discuss to produce authentic, collaborative work. As a teacher who coordinates wikis where thousands of students edit and co-create, Vicki can show you how collaborative content creation looks and how it aligns with the Common Core State Standards.

Less than 15% of wikipedia editors are women. This isn't surprising to many of us. I used to be a pretty active editor on several topics myself but the constant arguments were not something I had time for. I have two teenagers for that.
