Bridging the Gap between faculty Expectation and Student Experience: Teaching Students to Annotate and Synthesize Sources

Faculty across college campuses lament that students don't know how to read, evaluate, synthesize, and appropriately cite academic literature. Students express similar concerns. This presentation offers activities designed to demystify and empower students in learning two key steps of academic research: compiling bibliographic information and writing evaluative annotations, and reading and synthesizing academic journal articles.  Attendees of the presentation will leave with information on the need for and creation of these activities, hear of their application in both one-shot instruction and in credit-bearing environments in and out of the library, and be fully prepared to integrate these activities into their own academic environment.
