Below is a standard request for library instruction. Your task will be to review the request and design a lesson and accompanying instructional material for the class (Libguide, handouts, worksheet, etc)
Professor Ed. U. Gator
Course: English 1302 - Composition II
Number of students: 18
Time frame: 45 minutes
Topics to cover: Library databases, finding popular and scholarly articles, internet searching, search engines, evaluating sources
1. Review the assignment and determine the learning goals for the lesson. Use the following guide to help you: https://library.uhd.edu/ld.php?content_id=54600880
2. Develop a lesson plan or outline, including the specific content, concepts, activities you intend to cover. There are many lesson plan templates you can use get you started. However, we all develop our own teaching styles and procedures so feel free to adapt these templates and find something that works for you. I would recommend that your lesson plan include the following:
It can often be hard, especially when doing a "one-shot" instruction to determine how much to cover. One class is often not enough to cover everything we think would be important for students to know so to help with that I would recommend thinking of a lesson experience in three parts:
3. Instructional material: This includes handouts, worksheets and LibGuide. Handouts provide a physical item that students can take with them and keep. Worksheets are typically more "disposable" and are used in class for activities and active learning exercises. However, worksheets can also be kept for students to return to for reference throughout their research process. Libguides are kind of like "digital handouts" providing students with an online resource to refer to after the instruction.
Libguide from MacPhaidin Library - currently one of my "go-to" guides. They breakdown the framework so it's easier to understand and provide some Learning Outcomes you can use for your lesson. They also have some great example lessons (under Class/Activity Plans) that I've also been incorporating and using in my own lessons.
