Presentation Description

This panel consists of three first-year writing instructors in the Department of Writing and Linguistics at Georgia Southern University charged with teaching students information literacy skills. The panel members will discuss how they began with a common assignment and how, through discussion and collaboration, they adapted the assignment for their own classrooms, what problems they saw, and what they might do differently to help their students, including how they changed and/or plan to change their assignments for subsequent classes. This presentation will include the original assignment, the panel’s adaptations, and student samples.
