Dual Credit Library Instruction: An Effective University-Community Partnership
Smith, Ngaire
Metropolitan Universities, v24 n3 p62-73 2013
Dual credit students (those enrolled for both high school and postsecondary curricular credit) benefit from library instruction classes and provide an important opportunity for academic libraries to reach out to local K-12 schools. These classes benefit high school students whose excitement and enthusiasm make them uniquely open to acquiring advanced research skills during their library instruction session. Librarians who plan classes that include active learning strategies can help high school dual credit students learn skills to produce work that is acceptable at the college level, while also cultivating some of the skills that will help students become successful undergraduates.
