Teaching students to critically think and effectively research and write is a tall task, but an important one in ensuring students become informed citizens. The good news is we don’t have to face these challenging concepts alone. In Spring 2022, USU Librarians conducted a research study to better understand information literacy instruction that is occurring in our local high schools as well as understand teacher/librarian collaborations. Presenters will share key findings from this study and facilitate a discussion about how our expertise as teachers and librarians might intersect in ways that will better support our students. Participants will also discover resources to better support information literacy instruction.

Discussion Questions

  • What information literacy skills are you prioritizing in your classrooms?
  • What information literacy skills do you see your students struggling with the most?
  • What resources are you using to support your information literacy instruction?
  • How can we as teachers and librarians collaborate and make the best use of each other’s expertise in order to further develop students’ information literacy skills?
