Instructor name: Cheri Woods-Edwin Students refer to me as: Cheri Instructor e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Instructor phone: 503-608-2240 Instructor location: Rock Creek Preferred contact: e-mail Course subject: Developmental Education - DE Course number: 115 Course CRN: 13151 Number of Students: 23 ADA provisions needed: Preferred Date: 2013-01-30 Preferred Time: 3:00 pm Alternate Date: 2013-02-02 Alternate Time: 3:00 pm Duration: 105Minutes 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: The students will be doing an information literacy project where they will be completing a final project with the theme being "culture". Right now the students are reading the book "The Harmless People" by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas and the journal article "The Anatomy of Envy" by George M. Foster. For their information literacy project I would like the students to create a poster representing a specific culture, a specific ritual, or a specific symbol of a culture other than their own. In general I want the assignment to be open ended, but it does need to follow in the theme of culture. I am in the process of writing the assignment rubric this weekend and can send it to you as soon as it is completed on Monday. Please let me know if you have further questions. I would also be willing to come in to the library on Monday between the hours of 12 noon and 2:30 to discuss this plan. Upload class assignment and other relevant documents: What are your learning outcomes for this session? 4. Analyze texts in order to identify and articulate explicit and implied main idea and major details, distinguish fact from opinion, determine the authorís and readerís purpose and bias, and distinguish between literal and figurative meaning in a variety of increasingly complex academic and non-academic reading materials. Make accurate inferences and rely on information provided in text to substantiate thinking. Identify and evaluate complex points of view in different texts. Cultivate flexibility and skepticism about authorís and readerís perspectives.
5. Use library resources to formulate a research query and select appropriate sources of information. Use critical thinking to evaluate increasingly complex and diverse information and sources for academic and lifelong learning. Identify and make use of steps in the research process.
6. Exhibit habits and contribute to academic success, including engagement and intellectual curiosity. Employ active learning and study strategies for academic success. Use campus support services and other learning resources to help meet academic goals. Participate in a classroom learning community in a respective and responsive manner. Other notes: This is my first time teaching RD 115, so I am still trying to figure out ways to incorporate the learning outcomes with a finished product. I am open to any and all suggestions, feedback, or advice. Thank you in advance for any information you can share.
