Teaching Research for Academic Purposes

Teaching the ability to find, analyze, evaluate, and synthesize information is an important part of creating an environment in which ESL students feel empowered in the information age. However, a preliminary search of professional literature shows that there is a lack of research in information-literacy programs for ESL learners in higher education. This article seeks to create a framework for developing the information-literacy skills of college-level ESL students while at the same time teaching them the academic discourse and linguistic requirements they need to become lifelong learners, succeeding as college students and beyond. The author will propose a unit plan that can be used in its entirety in a content-based instruction (CBI) setting or that can be used in a modular manner within any given course. After the general unit plan is introduced, a more detailed lesson plan for 1 of the modules within the unit will follow.
