Library instruction sessions for The Reflective Woman are designed to introduce students to the foundations of college-level library research and inquiry.
The student learning outcomes we identified fpr TRW are organized around the following themes:
We are happy to work with you to develop a lesson plan that meets your needs and your students' needs. While some instructors choose to have a librarian meet with their students for one class session, we would like to suggest a new approach that delivers instruction at the point of need throughout the semester in 2-3 class sessions. The following is a suggested sequence of library sessions.
Time: Approx. 15-30 minutes
Let students know that librarians are here to help - and how they can contact us
Provide the basics of finding/accessing library resources during their first few weeks on campus
Time: Approx. 50-90 minutes
Many students start off with topics that are either too broad or narrow in scope
Effective database searching requires a thoughtful search process
Not all sources are created equal, and different types may be appropriate for different situations
Optional depending on instructor preference and how students score on a quiz after viewing an online plagiarism/citation tutorial
Time: Approx. 50 minutes
Develop an understanding of plagiarism and the importance of academic integrity
Introduction to the basic mechanics of APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.
