Librarians as Writing Instructors

MINITEX's new CPERS librarian, Rita Baladad, along with Karen Bronshteyn, published the article "Librarians as Writing Instructors: Using Paraphrasing Exercises to Teach Beginning Information Literacy Students" in The Journal of Academic Librarianship, Volume, 32, Number 5, pages 533-536.

"This article promotes the use of paraphrasing exercises and add-ons to information literacy instruction in order for students to gain proficiency in thinking critically about a source and expressing their own voice with the convention of parenthetical citation. Examples are provided for development and assessment of a paraphrasing excise to promote the effective utilization of information."
