Making Information Literacy Fun - Murder at Grim Marsh House

Making Information Literacy Fun -  Murder at Grim Marsh House | Bibliotecas & Cª | Scoop.it

"We all want to make our information literacy sessions with groups memorable. At the CILIPS Autumn Gathering Chris Morrison, the School Librarian at Linlithgow Academy shared his programmes which introduce S1s and S2s to the skills needed for using the library and information sources. These are not ordinary library sessions though - the pupils are challenged to solve murder mysteries and discover the whereabouts of lost historical artefacts such as the Blue Diamond, which went missing in the French Revolution, or Joan of Arc's standard."

Using Wikipedia in information literacy instruction

As an information literacy instructor at Auburn University, it has been a perpetual struggle to teach students how to successfully search for library resources when they come to their one-time library sessions with only a broad paper topic and no idea how to narrow it down. A student recently told me regarding an English composition due in a few days, “The topic is so broad, I can’t pick an argument. I don’t even know where to start.” I began encouraging students to use a resource that they feel comfortable with as a starting point—Wikipedia.

It is better to be positive about something that students use rather than negative. As long as they know the pitfalls it is a good place to start. Just not the place to stay! 

Karen Draper's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

This is what I teach my students-- get ideas from Wikipedia, use it as a jumping point. Make sure all info is backed up by primary & secondary sources.

Monica Crane-Gatto's curator insight, January 31, 11:39 PM

Using Wikipedia as a starting point can assist in narrowing a search that will lead into vetted databases research.
