UGS 302: Understanding 9/11
Description: In this seminar, students completed an initial research exercise that required them to find two sources that supported a journalist's reporting on an event related to 9/11. Students completed this assignment before meeting with the course librarian, using the online course research guide to support their initial searching. The librarian also created a rubric for the exercise that the faculty member could use to assess student performance. The library instruction session was scheduled after students developed a research question abstract for their topic, allowing the librarian to work with them during the session to narrow their focus and develop a research strategy to find sources for their final research paper.
