“This Will Help You See More"
Information Literacy Instruction at a High School Early College will share the findings from a case study examining how two history professors developed students’ information literacy. Observations revealed that the professors situated students as legitimate peripheral participants in the discipline of history using routine classroom practices, including dialogical reading, spending time with texts, writing to think, and thinking historically (that is, engaging with historical scholarship as knowledge claims). Discussion afterwards will consider what the findings might mean for librarians in high school and college.
