Engaging Students with Scholarly Articles: Active Learning Strategies

Share this Post:

Scholarly journal articles can be intimidating to teach with. Students may find their length discouraging, be overwhelmed by the author’s formal topic vocabulary, or assume all documents within a scholarly journal represent original research or analysis. In this webinar, high school librarian Wendy DeGroat shares strategies you can use to prepare students to recognize a range of document types they’re likely to encounter, scaffold their understanding of topic vocabulary before they read a lengthy source, and quickly evaluate articles for their usefulness. Along the way, you’ll learn about free resources to support students’ engagement with scholarly journal articles as well as expert sources that may serve as useful stepping stones.

Watch this webinar on-demand to: 

  • Learn ways to improve students’ success in using scholarly journal articles
  • Engage with lesson ideas you can adapt to any topic or database
  • Discover free resources you can add to your library’s research toolbox
