8 a.m. - 9:50 a.m.

WR 121, Blair *rb

nstructor name: Margot Blair
Students refer to me as: Margot, Mrs. Blair, Professor Blair!
Instructor e-mail: margot.blair@pcc.edu
Instructor phone: 503-719-7280
Instructor location: Cascade
Preferred contact: e-mail
Course subject: Writing - WR
Course number: 121
Course CRN: 14438
Number of Students: 23
ADA provisions needed: no
Preferred Date: 2013-02-04
Preferred Time: 8:00 am
Alternate Date: 2013-02-06
Alternate Time: 8:00 am
Duration: 100Minutes
Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of
library instruction? Yes
If yes please specify: The initial 10-15 minutes will be sufficient
Assignment description and sample topics: The students will be working on a
strictly Informative essay. They will have a lot of leeway in terms of
topics, but I will submit their chosen topics to the librarian prior to
meeting in the Library for instruction. They will be instructed not to take
a stance or argue a position, but rather to do solid research (evaluate
sources) in order to gain a deeper understanding PRIOR to taking a stance, or
perhaps better put, in order to take a well informed stance - a collect the
dots in order to connect the dots approach! The class is mixed in terms of
age and experience, some with little to no experience doing research, and
many who are new to PCC and what our library really has to offer.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session? All of the listed above,
plus MLA citations (the magic button for formatting), how to start with a
thesis question, narrowing a topic to make it manageable and more interesting
based on the assigned length of an essay, and of course, some of the benefits
of using actual books. In the past, the librarian doing the instruction
provided handouts that had to so with thesis questions, thesis statements,
and evaluating sources. These were very helpful to many of the students. I
saved copies, and can provide them if needed.
Other notes:
Whatever class time remains after instruction, I would like to allow students
time, while the information is fresh, to employ what they have learned on
their own papers, while there is a librarian present with who to consult.
Doing this makes students more comfortable to seek out librarians in the
future. Though librarian led instruction may not last beyond an hour or so,
the class runs from 8:00 - 9:50 AM, and I would like to be able to use the
room for the entire time.
As always, thanks for all you do.

If yes please specify: Will be reviewing essays written the previous week
Assignment description and sample topics: (This is a Saturday morning class;
so, I hope this can be scheduled). Students will begin the process of
completing a comprehensive research project (I-Search Essay) that calls for
12 resources, half of which must be peer-reviewed. The assignment will be due
at the end of the term. The subject must be persuasive, one in which the
students must present both side of the argument while demonstrating that
their position is the strongest. I'll give you a list of potential subjects
and guideline for the essay in next couple of weeks. I'll also give you a
list of topics or issues that students have selected the week before we meet.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session?
1) Students to have a clear understanding of peer reviewed articles and some
examples;
2) Students are directed to the rich variety of resources available through
PCC library and websites;
3) Students begin narrowing down their topics;
4) Students have a little time to explore some of the electronic sites and
data bases, looking for their specific topics.
Other notes: I'll drop off the detailed assignment once we settle on a date.
Hope that one of the reference librarians is available on a Saturday morning,
as this is a once-a-week class that meets 9 a.m. to noon. Feel free to call
me if you wish.

What are your learning outcomes for this session?
The primary purpose of this mid-quarter visit is to encourage library use by
making students more comfortable with how to use it and what they'll find
there. I'm looking for Library 101, with an introduction to all the
awesomeness the library has to offer!
Objectives:
- Finding good books to read
- What to do in the library (study, read, study groups?, help from
librarians...)
- Resources available
- Critical thinking: introduction to considering a source and its
reliability, credibility, etc. I only want to introduce them to the idea of
thinking about where a text (or other) comes from and how they can decide if
it suits their purpose. We will be doing more in class with this, post-visit.
- Love the library!

I am open to suggestions from librarians for our visit too!
