Assignment description and sample topics:
Introduction to the library and library databases, especially EBSCOhost.
Introduction to Google docs as a tool to take notes and revise their essays.
Students are working on a Literacy Narrative. Students will research a
literacy-related topic in order to expand and deepen their first drafts. For
example, a student might find a few sources on the relationship between
literacy and comic books, if she wrote about comic books in her first draft.
Similarly, students might find sources about the importance of reading to
children, video games and literacy, Goosebumps and literacy, Harry Potter and
literacy, the impact of e-readers on literacy, reaching reluctant readers,
etc. In other words, students will pick up on a literacy-related topic in
their first drafts and research further in order to expand and develop the
essay for the final draft.
