Principles Instructional Design Meg Frazier
  • Create questions and situations that ask the
    student to perform realistic tasks in realistic
    settings.  
  • Provide relevant practice of the skill in
    question.
  • Help them find the context clues that will aid
    memory.
  • Asking student to make decisions helps to get
    information into memory and aids in retrieval
    practice.
  • Providing  feedback for incorrect answers allows
    students to correct  misinformation and practice
    retrieving information from memory.
  • Repetition and Spacing can aid in reinforcement .
  • From Robert Mager and Will Thalheimer

What I Do in Exercises Meg Frazier
  • Ask them where they should go to find, rather
    then tell them where to go
  • Have them look for context clues in the search
    tool that will help them either revise their
    search or find more like this
  • Only go over the pieces of the exercise packet
    with which students have the most problems
  • Use the framework questions to connect with
    previous ideas, look at common misperceptions

  • Finding Books via the Library Catalog. Names
  •  
  • Find the library Catalog from the Library Web
    PageRead the Search examples on the Catalog page
  •  
  • What search would you do, if you know the title
    of the book you are looking for?
  • When would you do an Anyword Anywhere search?
    And when would you do a Subject search?
  • Key words are words that relate to the topic of
    the book you are looking for Write down 2 or 3
    keywords that relate to a book you need for a
    paper on Educational Reform.
  • Try some of your keywords to find one book
  • Where is the book located? What is its call
    number?
  •  
  • Make sure you are in the full-view of the record
    of the book and look at the Subject Headings
    (Subject LCSH) Follow the Subject Heading links
    to other books. Keep following and looking until
    you can write down 3 or 4 subject headings that
    relate to the book you need for paper on
    Educational Reform.

Keyword search. Search two search for cancer as
a Subject search.   What are some of the
differences between the Keyword search and the
Subject search?    2. Modifying Searches Wilson

GOALS OF COMBINING ENGLISH 101 AND COMMUNICATION
103 Jan Frazier
  • Informal discussion to formal pilot course
  • Same students together in both classes all
    semester
  • Reinforcements from Eng 101, Com 103, and the
    library
  • Researching only once (speech and essay)
  • Corresponding to real life internship
    Research Write Talk
  • Through research and reinforcement, we hope the
    students will remember that these tasks are
    techniques used in all subjects.
