Information Literacy Instruction for Writing Classes

Writing Classes

We have worked with the composition team to agree on the following Information Literacy Outcomes for WR 60 & 65.

WR 60 and WR 65

Fall Term 2011, the Developmental Education Committee decided on the following information literacy outcomes for WR 60 and WR 65:

WR 60

  • Students will be able to use online and print specialized encyclopedias to expand background knowledge, help explore topics, and insert prepared in-text citations for instructor-provided items.

WR 65

  • Students will become familiar with basic library resources to expand background knowledge and help explore topics, and will be able to insert prepared in-text citations for instructor-provided items.
  • Students will be able to execute effective web searching and evaluation of web resources for critical reading, writing, and thinking.

WR 121 and WR 122

As of fall 2013, librarians WILL visit your WR 121 and/or WR 122 course (this is a shift from past policy).
