The Composition II library session should be based on one or more of the following learning outcomes. It is recommended that no more than two learning outcomes be addressed in a single library session.
1. Examine the purpose and characteristics of scholarly journals and articles and the process of peer-review in order to find and recognize scholarly articles.
2. Find articles from citations using Full-Text Finder in order to locate articles in full-text and in print effectively.
3. Relate a topic to a subject area and disciplines in order to improve focus and find more relevant sources.
4. Explain the sources of information and statistics for local issues and how local issues fit into regional, national or global contexts in order to find relevant information to support a proposal.
Instructional materials for all of these learning outcomes may be found in the Library 201 module for Composition II. Some of these materials may be assigned to students in advance of a session for a "flipped" classroom model that will allow students more hands-on time during the session.
