Information Literacy Instructor's Resource: Sample Information Literacy Assignments
This LibGuide provides information and resources for instructors who want to integrate information literacy instruction and assignments into their courses.
Situated IL instruction places the research into a specific context in which the research fits naturally into the demands of a discipline or work environment. The two activities below are samples of IL situated in a work environment in which graduates with speech or writing backgrounds might find themselves.
The sample activity consists of small-group use of literary analysis resources (WorldCat and four research databases). Each group fills out a form based on its use and assessment of a single resource, then reports to the class on that resource.
This activity encourages students to experience and reflect on databases used by Education graduate students. Created by Abby Moore.
A jigsaw activity is a cooperative learning technique using small groups. The strategy is an efficient teaching method that also encourages listening, engagement, interaction, peer teaching, and cooperation by giving each member of the group an essential part to play in the academic activity. Both individual and group accountability are built into the process. Groups are assigned small information-finding projects; they then report to the class on their findings.

An annotated bibliography is a citation of a resource that includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources. Depending on your project or the assignment, your annotations may do one or more of the following: summary, evauation, and assessment.
