The instruction librarians look forward to working with you and your students on their argument papers!
Goals for information literacy instruction for FYS:
Please email email@example.com with any questions you have and to schedule a session.
1. Online Scavenger Hunt
2. Evaluating Information Activity
Do you need help designing your argument paper? The librarians worked with 2 FYS faculty to create a toolkit of scaffolded assignments that will guide students through the process of research and writing. Feel free to use and modify the assignments to fit your needs.
Scaffold the Argument Paper: A Toolkit of Assignments
If you are interesting in collaborating with a librarian to use the BEAM method as a way to design and assess assignments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We see potential in using BEAM as a way to help students think differently about how they write from sources.
