Teaching Information Literacy and Writing Studies: Volume 1, First-Year Composition Courses (Purdue Information Literacy Handbooks) (English Edition)
This volume, edited by Grace Veach, explores leading approaches to
foregrounding information literacy in first-year college writing courses.
Chapters describe cross-disciplinary efforts underway across higher education,
as well as innovative approaches of both writing professors and librarians in
the classroom. This seminal work unpacks the disciplinary implications for information
literacy and writing studies as they encounter one another in theory and
practice, during a time when "fact" or "truth" is less important than fitting a predetermined message. Topics include reading and writing
through the lens of information literacy, curriculum design, specific writing
tasks, transfer, and assessment.
