This lesson plan uses Kevin Seeber's process cards and our newly created set of process cards that focus on news sources. In the activities using the process cards, our students were able to define and contextualize different types of information resources, including news sources. The tranfer and apply assessment used to close the session provides an opportunity for the students to think about how they would integrate these types of information into coursework, the workplace, and their personal lives.

Information Literacy Frame(s) Addressed: Authority is Constructed and Contextual, Information Creation as Process
This rubric was developed to assess students' written reflections about primary source materials they encountered in class.

It was adapted from the SAA/RBMS Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy.

Resource Type(s): Assessment Material
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.
