How to Help Students Ask Better Questions by Creating a Culture of Inquiry

How to Help Students Ask Better Questions by Creating a Culture of Inquiry | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

"Student inquiry is at the heart of student choice. When students are able to ask their own questions, they can chase their curiosity and tap into their own interests. They can build on their prior knowledge and build a bridge to new information that they are analyzing. But how do we actually do this?

"Students Should Chase Their Curiosity

I want classrooms to be bastions of creativity and wonder. I want to see students chasing their curiosity and researching answers. I love what happens when students solve problems that don’t have easy answers; when they become builders and engineers and authors and scientists and historians bent on finding out the truth. And yet, this doesn’t always happen in school. Often, we stick too tightly to curriculum maps and deadlines and students learn to value compliance above empowerment. And the result is a lack of natural curiosity.

"How to Help Students Ask Better Questions

We want to see kids asking tons of questions. This is how students grow into creative, critical thinkers. In an inquiry-based framework, it all begins with student questions. But how do we actually make that happen? The answer lies in a culture of inquiry. This includes everything from the trust that teachers develop to the way they reduce fear to the lessons they develop to the strategies they use."

Content curation is a skill. Setting a limit on what students can use makes them focus on why each resource is important.

"Con tanta información disponible, es imperativo que los estudiantes desarrollen las habilidades para encontrar y evaluar de forma efectiva las fuentes de información, categorizar lo que han encontrado y crear nuevos significados para esos materiales añadiendo sus propias reseñas o hallazgos".

Organization is a critical academic skill and one that many students struggle with in both the physical and digital worlds. Parents and teachers already help students get organized and now need to extend that to the digital world. Given the influx of technology in their academic lives, students need to develop an effective organizational system for their digital notes, projects and thinking.

10 Ways to Teach Argument-Writing With The New York Times

10 Ways to Teach Argument-Writing With The New York Times | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Free webinar with Nicholas Kristof on Oct. 10. Will be archived after the live session.

 

"How can writing change people’s understanding of the world? How can it influence public opinion? How can it lead to meaningful action?

In this post, which accompanies our Oct. 10 webinar, Write to Change the World: Crafting Persuasive Pieces With Help from Nicholas Kristof and the Times Op-Ed Page, we round up the best pieces we’ve published over the years about how to use the riches of The Times’s Opinion section to teach and learn.

We’ve sorted the ideas — many of them from teachers — into two sections. The first helps students do close-readings of editorials and Op-Eds, as well as Times Op-Docs, Op-Art and editorial cartoons. The second suggests ways for students to discover their own voices on the issues they care about. We believe they, too, can “write to change the world.”

Join our webinar (live on Oct. 10 or on-demand after) to learn more, and let us know in the comments how you teach these important skills."

Even though this article may seem to contain very basic foundations of critical thiking, it provides us with explanations and steps for developing critical thinking skills from a learner perspective in the sense that it illustrates very well the ways in which this can be implemented. From a teacher perspective it also provides us with very useful and adjustable questions in oder to promote the development of HOTS in any type of task, with any type of topic.

Teaching Google Scholar in your library instructional sessions can increase students' information and digital literacy skills. Students' familiarity with Google Scholar's interface works to the instructor's advantage and allows more time to address students' information needs and teach foundational information literacy skills and less time teaching a new database with a less-intuitive database interface. Teaching Google Scholar: A Practical Guide for Librarians will illustrate instructional methods and incorporate step-by-step guides and examples for teaching Google Scholar. It begins with providing you with essential background:What Google Scholar isHow to set up Google Scholar using OpenURLHow to design Google Scholar instructional sessionsHow to incorporate active learning activities using Google ScholarAfter reading it, you will be ready to teach students critical skills including how to:Use specific Google Scholar search operatorsIncorporate search logicExtract citation data, generate citations, and save citations to Google's My Library and/or a citation management programUse Google Scholar tools- including 'cited by,' 'alerts,' 'library links,' and 'library search'Google Scholar is a powerful research tool and will only become more popular in the coming years. Learning how to properly teach students how to utilize this search engine in their research will greatly benefit them in their college career and help promote life-long learning. Google Scholar instruction is a must in today's modern information literacy classroom.

Two truths and a lie: an educator's guide to support information literacy 

Two truths and a lie: an educator's guide to support information literacy  | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it
With more information being created and shared than ever before, it is imperative that we incorporate information literacy into today’s classrooms in order to equip students with critical skills for participation in the world as informed and independent thinkers. In Two Truths and a Lie: It’s Alive!, Ammi-Joan Paquette and Laurie Ann Thompson have created a work of children’s literature that serves as an information literacy entry point, by presenting stories that weave together bewildering biological facts and fascinating photos while also demanding that readers employ their best critical thinking skills in order to weigh whether each story is true or false. This book can be used as a catalyst for shared conversations about facts and fiction, and offers multiple opportunities for practicing the evaluation of nonfiction stories.
