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 class will be working on an
"Analyzing a Text" essay. I would like students to learn about EBSCOhost and
other library resources in order to find secondary sources for quotations and
support. For example, film reviews if they are analyzing a film or scholarly
essays about Dexter or The Colbert Report if they are writing about a
television show. The "text" in "analyzing a text" might be something from
popular culture or a presidential speech--or even a poem. Also, it would be
great to help students with framing their research question for finding
secondary sources.
