Deconstructing the Research Process: Preparing High School Students for College Level Research and Writing

Laura Hooper, St. George's School

This is the (short) story of how a traditional one-shot instruction session evolved through collaboration into scaffolded learning, with the librarian embedded in the last several weeks of the course offering a series of 3 workshops on information literacy concepts. Attendees will be asked to consider the assumptions we make about students’ research and writing abilities, especially as they transition between levels of education, and how we can better meet their needs by adjusting and scaffolding our instruction sessions.
