Ages 12 and under present a potential legal trap in the U.S., so I’d recommend using the CD version of Wikipedia for grades K-8.

Subject: [Wikimedia Education] Teaching Critical Reading through Wikipedia

Does anyone know of specific materials developed for teaching critical reading skills (either in K-12 or higher education) *through* reading Wikipedia? 

I vaguely remember coming across some, but don't remember the details.

I'm thinking about things like "how to identify bias", "how to distill the argument from a paragraph", "what are weasel words", logical fallacies, etc.
