In a typical year, the library teachers log many classroom hours with our History colleagues and their students, teaching research skills and the ins and outs of citations. This year we are doing the same by employing some added technologies to ensure that the concepts are understood by all students. During one early project, the library teachers “zoomed in” with 10th-grade History students to review the hows and whys of in-text citations.
In addition to attending the live class, the library teachers prepared an EdPuzzle video to provide students an opportunity to review and test their knowledge. This video also provided those who missed the in-class presentation a means of keeping up with the class. Feel free to explore the EdPuzzle yourself if you’d like to brush up on your citation skills.
