This will be an interactive meeting where participants exchange proven, as well as experimental, instructional activities. If you're looking to try something new with your instruction or learn more about how colleagues approach instruction in either a high school or college setting, come to the Lesson Plan lab. You will have the opportunity to present a 10-minute version of successful instructional activity or try out a new approach to get feedback from colleagues. Bring any materials you would need for the activity and your lesson plans.
We will be breaking out into four smaller groups, with each group tackling an instructional challenge.
Group 1: Understanding Call Numbers (either Dewey or LC)
Group 2: How to read a citation
Group 3 (As selected by group feedback): Avoiding Plagiarism and Citing Sources
Group 4 (As selected by group feedback): Using Databases, where to start and how to search
At the end of the meeting we will have time to discuss what we learned, how things worked out, and the challenges both high school and college librarians have in reaching students through instruction.
