Description: This course required students to write a research paper, scaffolded through the semester with feedback and revision along the way. The librarian created a "Choose a Topic" worksheet to guide students to find a topic of interest and relevance to them early in the semester. Students then had to complete a Source Identification and Analysis Assignment that required them to find 4 sources, including 2 print books in the library, and evaluate them. After students turned in that assignment, they came to a librarian-led instruction session organized around their questions from the assignment. In addition to discussing evaluation and search during the session, the librarian created a tailored research guide for students to use throughout the semester.
