Jaime Parker's curator insight, July 10, 2013 2:22 PM

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

 

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, July 10, 2013 7:07 PM

What to expect when librarians are being cut everywhere or stretched so thin to covel 4 schools in one week?

 

Sarah McElrath's curator insight, July 25, 2013 1:26 PM

Useful form for evaluating websites.
