Information Literacy Program Development for ESL Classes in a Community College
Pracha, Christina; Stout, Mary; Jurkowitz, Lisa
Community & Junior College Libraries, v13 n4 p17-39 2005
At Pima Community College's Downtown Campus, the ESL lead faculty, library intern and librarian collaborated to create a comprehensive, progressive information literacy curriculum, based upon principles and best practices in both Second Language Acquisition Theory and the Information Literacy Competency Standards for a suite of ESL courses. The collaboration resulted in the development of a matrix, which tied specific skills to goals and desired outcomes, and served as a framework to generate specific information literacy curricula. A review of the ESL bibliographic instruction professional literature resulted in the application of some "best practices" gleaned from the articles.
