Follow-Up Sports Medicine Lesson
This week, my inside hours included a follow-up lesson on using the KYVL databases to access credible sources. I decided to meet in Mr. Hudson’s classroom, since the Surface Lab caused us so many issues when we tried to use it last week. I checked out the English Department iPad cart, wheeled it down, and worked with the ten sports medicine students on how to site, paraphrase, and quote journals, newspapers, magazines, and print books. We used the resources I created to find three sources per student to support his/her stance on the use of performance enhancing drugs. The students then had another lesson with Mr. Hudson using all these materials to write out formal arguments on each side. The next step for his class is the actual debate. I can’t wait!
The library media specialist also had a grant approved for updating the collection to include medical books. I am so excited because some of the books were in my recommendations after I did a collection analysis earlier in my program. I feel that I have actually had an impact on the library media center using action research and data collection. The students will benefit and our overall collection will improve.
This weekend I will attend another conference on educational technology, so I will report all my new ideas and excitement then!
