This one-shot lesson plan was designed for first-year community college students in a First Year Experience (FYE) course at Lone Star College-CyFair Library, a joint use academic and public library branch of the Harris County Public Library. The lesson plan introduces students to information resources available in print and online in an 80-minute tour and classroom session. Librarians also collaborated with FYE instructors to align the lesson plan’s activities with course outcomes and financial literacy topics covered on the FYE syllabus around the time the one-shots are scheduled. Students work in groups, complete a worksheet, present their work as a group, and reflect in a minute paper at the end of the session.
