Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of
library instruction? Yes
If yes please specify:
Assignment description and sample topics:
Give students a sense of what library resources are available--especially
short fiction anthologies--as well as online resources (the New Yorker? Other
short story magazines?) to find good quality interesting fiction. I'm telling
them they must pick a story that is accessible through PCC's library (or they
need to get permission some other way).

I will glance at what's available in the RC library to frame this a little
bit more, too. Here's the assignment; and the syllabus is attached for
context.


Teaching / Due in class Week 10 & 11/ 20%
This is your turn to lead the class. Our syllabus has six open slots. Over
the course of the term, you and a group will prepare to fill one of those
blanks.
In week two, you’ll sign up with a group. Then, over the course of the
term, you’ll:
• Pick a story for us to read and get copies to distribute to the class
(PDF or print).
o I will give you a chance to check out many anthologies from which you might
chose a story (or stories). I’ll also enlist the help of the library.
There’s lots of help.
o I need to approve your story by no later than the end of Week 8. Once
you’ve chosen a story, let me know.
• Gather biographical/contextual information about the author and her or
his work.
o this includes where/if they went to school, what books they’ve written,
what
awards they’ve received, but also their ideas about writing or life in
general.
o You can make a handout, powerpoint, lecture, a piece of performance art, or
however you like. Definitely don’t be afraid to include video (lots of
authors have video interviews online).
• Help us understand what we read.
o guide us through plot, character, setting, language, other stuff that made
you like or hate the story
o direct us to important words/phrases/sentences/paragraphs so we can discuss
them
o help us draw conclusions about the text’s meaning and significance
• you might do this by...
o leading group discussion
o starting a debate
o assigning us work in small groups or partners
o perhaps, bringing in other texts (poems, videos, reviews or critical
articles) that relate to or enrich what we read
o lecturing us about its greatness
o giving us a quiz
These are just suggestions. How you lead the class is entirely up to your
group. But your group will lead our class for about 45 minutes on the day
you’ve signed up for.
Whatever you do, this assignment allows you to direct our class towards your
interests and serves to show you how much you’ve learned—about fiction,
about active learning, and about an author you’re interested in.
I will give you some classtime, during the term, to meet with your groups to
start making plans, but you need to do this work out of class.

Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of
library instruction? No
If yes please specify:
Assignment description and sample topics:
My WR122 students are writing what we're calling a Community Essay, in which
they'll write 12-15 pages exploring a particular local culture/sub-culture
through primary/secondary sources, observation/inference, field work,
personal narrative, etc. I'll want them to learn to use the library system to
find appropriate secondary resources from magazine articles, to learn about
the current issues/conversations at stake in their chosen sub-culture. Some
students are writing about roller derby, homeless camps/street kids, timber's
army, mixed martial arts fighting, etc.

I have two classes that are doing the same assignment, so I would like to
reserve the room for both 4:45-5:45, and 6:45-7:45 on Wednesday, OCT. 9, or
Wednesday, OCT 16 if possible.
