Work with your librarian
Your librarian is happy to help incorporate information literacy skills and concepts into your class. If you have a research based assignment you may schedule a library instruction session to help your students get started with their research. Other ideas for incorporating information literacy into your class include:
- Have your students compare and contrast three sources of information about the same topic. Have them look at a web site, a magazine and a scholarly journal article to help them discrimate the type of information that each provides.
- Have your students "Google" the author of one of your Course Reserve readings to see what they can find out.
- Have your students paraphrase their course reserve readings and watch for the temptation to simply copy'n'paste without thinking
Library Instruction for Your Students
If you have a research component to any of your assignments, I may be able to provide some tips that can make the process more productive for your students. I’m happy to provide any of the following forms of support for your research assignments:
- A face to face library instruction session...your classroom or mine. Schedule an instruction session by contacting me directly, or by using this form:
- A Research Guide for your class, subject area, or topic:
- Supply my name and contact details to your students A heads-up and a copy of the assignment they’ll be working on is always appreciated if you do this
When working with your librarian to develop a library session or research guide, take a look at the Information Literacy Standards for Anthropology & Sociology Students to get an idea of the range of topics that can be covered.
