This chart is the result of a partnership between campus Writing Coordinator,  First Year Seminar Coordinator, and myself (Information Literacy Coordinator) to create a customizable assignment structure for our first year seminar class. It offers a template for integrating information literacy into the course and links threshold concepts of writing composition to the Framework. Composition threshold concepts are those outlined by Kassner and Wardle (2015) Naming What We Know: Threshold Concepts of Writing Studies.

The three rubrics here were designed for an introductory course for English majors, but the ways in which the ACRL Framework is used could be replicated for any discipline and could be extended to program assessment.  Each rubric addresses one ARCL Frame.  The ACRL "dispositions" are treated as desired learning outcomes; the ACRL "knowledge practices" play the role of descriptors.  The rubric is intended to be used not simply on a student-produced project or activity, but on a project and a structured student reflection taken together.

Professor Jarvis C. McInnis, Ph.D., from the English & Africana Studies department met with me to discuss how we can get his students connected to information resources that demonstrated mastery of literary works, primary and secondary resources , critical works, and multi-media resources in order to formulate an annotated bibliography.  The following Library Research Guide was used in a library instruction session that focused on developing Boolean searching in order to find resources to create an annotated bibliography.

This lesson plan is designed to move students from a "Google experience" of information to the use of academic, peer-reviewed, and primary resources available within the Hesburgh Libraries. Dr. Kelly and I formulated a lesson that get at the heart of information literacy within the context of a Writing & Rhetoric course. The following writing assignment focuses on first year undergraduate students getting connected to information resources that will alow exploration of various points of view and themselves as contributors and consumers of information that contributes to the scholarly nature of rhetorical analysis.
