Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of
library instruction? Yes
If yes please specify: maybe 5 minutes to explain assignments
Assignment description and sample topics: Orienting to the library, learning
to browse, identifying various genres and personal reading interests, using
the catalogue, and selecting an independent book for class (to be used for
Sustained Silent Reading in class).
Students will be able to (check all that apply):
- Perform an efficient search of the library catalog for books and other
materials (15 minutes)
- Physically locate items and other resources (brief library tour ) (15
Other notes: This initial visit would be an opportunity for students to visit
the library and begin to think about what books might interest them for an
independent book project and Sustained Silent Reading. I am thinking that
students would share ways that they find out about or recommend books, have
the librarian share about several of the books on the DE/High Interest book
list that students could check out, then show students how to use the library
website and online catalogue to search for a book of their choice.
