My Instructional Technologies class is exploring technology in school libraries. We are assessing the usefulness of technology in library instruction and learning to determine the best mediums for content, differentiation and special needs. For our first project, my groupmates and I crafted a mock unit in which the school librarian collaborates with eighth grade teachers of English and History, using Persepolis as the touchstone text, to explore the Iranian Revolution. The final product of this mini-project is a one-page political cartoon on an issue in Persepolis. In an effort to meet students’ research needs and instruct on the principles of research, we created a Weebly site outlining a basic, general research process and valid resources. The process was adapted from Jen Hubert Swan’s McCarthyism libguides at Little Red School House in NYC. Check out the final product and let me know what you think!
