Use the same mean to improve articles in terms of

  • language. Correct spelling, clarify some words or choose better ones...
  • complexity and structure. Articles should be kept simple enough for 8 to 13 year old children. A good structure with well-thought headings is definitely a must.
  • format and illustrations. Keep paragraphs short. Use bullet lists where appropriate. Emphasize some words in bold. Add a couple of images to illustrate the article.
  • connection to other articles. Add links on the article pointing towards other articles and reverse (links towards the article into some other articles). Categorize the article and link it to a portal.
