OVERVIEW: The high school Bible teacher approached me because I am the middle and high school interim media specialist. He asked if I could assist him with his ninth grade Bible classes. He explained that he assigned a 6 to 10 verse passage from the book of Ephesians in the Bible. The assignments focus was for students to write a paper requiring them to summarize the passages. Students would need to find sources to assist them in decoding and understanding the individual verses, and then construct a summary of the passage. In this initial meeting, I asked Mr. Martin several questions about the project including; where did he want them to find sources, in addition to a bibliography page, would he require parenthetical citations, and what format did he want the final product in? I also asked him in what areas of research did his students need the most assistance. Mr. Martin was very specific about what aspects of the paper he would like my assistance on. They included identifying authoritative web sources, outlining and note taking, and the creation of bibliographic and parenthetical citations from various sources. From the initial meeting, I set out to identify the standards that would be addressed, and create a lesson plan of action for the task. In our second meeting, I indicated that each topic would require at least 40 minutes of class time. We decided to do 3 sessions over 3 days, but later decided to do one session per week for three weeks. This would give students a chance to practice the skills taught during class on a brief homework assignment that I would assess prior to the next session. Mr. Martin choose to have the sessions on Wednesdays because of our schools modified schedule. Class periods last only 30 minutes on Wednesdays. I asked Mr. Martin to share with me some examples of the outlined Bible passages, and he gave me a word document with examples of a topical outline, and a detailed outline of Bible passages. We also discussed the print resources that were available to the students from his classroom library. In our third planning meeting, I presented him with 3 lesson plans, each addressing one of the topics that he identified. FINAL PRODUCT: Students will produce a paper summarizing the meaning of passages from the book of Ephesians in the Bible. The summary will be based on the information and insights gathered during the research process.

LIBRARY LESSON(S): Evaluating Websites Outlining and note taking Creating bibliographic and parenthetical citations from various sources

ASSESSMENT Product The media specialist will conduct 3 instructional sessions. Using the project rubric as a guide, the

Leahr 7

media specialist will guide and instruct students in the evaluating websites using the RADCAB evaluation model. Guide and instruct students on producing a topical outline of their assigned Bible passages using the outlining the bible document supplied by the teacher as a template. After watching and discussing a brief three part video on plagiarism, students will take an interactive quiz on plagiarism as a self-assessment, and submit results to a drop box for assessment by the media specialist. Process

The teacher and media specialist will review answers to questions from media specialist assigned discussion post to assess understanding of daily material The media specialist will review the RADCAB website evaluation chart to determine if authoritative web sites were chosen. The media specialist and teacher will review the student produced topical outline. The media specialist will review the bibliographic citations for two sources to ensure proper MLA formatting standards. The media specialist will review the plagiarism quiz results to determine if students have a fundamental understanding of plagiarism and ethical research practices.

Student self-questioning Student self- questioning is reflected in discussion post assignments after each lesson. Examples are listed below. Where there any websites that you rejected because they did not pass your evaluation? If so what were they? Why did they fail your evaluation? What websites did you choose? What does it mean to cite a source? Why is it important to cite your sources? What is plagiarism? When you summarize do you need to site your sources? If you dont is that considered plagiarism? Which method of note taking did you choose to use? Why? Why is it important to cross reference the note to the source? Should notes be taken word for word or in a summary format? Why?

INSTRUCTIONAL PLAN Resources students will use: Web sites Books Reference

Leahr 8

Non-print -Other (list): Biblical Concordances Biblical Commentaries Instruction/activities Day 1 - Evaluating Websites: Direct instruction: Ask students how will you know that a website is ok to use for your project? Do the websites need to meet any specific criteria to qualify for use in your paper Look at some of these hoax websites. What is the main feature that tells you it is a hoax? Introduce RADCAB Students will write/type the acrostic RADCAB on a document Modeling and guided practice: Using the RADCAB acrostic evaluate 1 website together Independent practice: Students will find 2 internet sources and evaluate them using the RADCAB acrostic document. Sharing and reflecting: Students will respond to a discussion post answers to the following questions? Where there any websites that you rejected because they did not pass your evaluation? If so what were they? Why did they fail your evaluation? What websites did you choose? Day 2 Outlining and note taking Direct instruction: Discuss the project and the intended result Ask students where do they plan to put the facts and information gathered How do they plan to organize it? Introduce 2 note taking techniques (note cards, power point) Modeling and guided practice: Using an example outline show students how to organize the main topic of each Bible verse or verses Using the power point method, demonstrate how to gather information for each topic. Demonstrate how to tie each gathered fact back to the source that it came from. Independent practice: Students will choose one subtopic and gather 3 supporting details using at least 2 resources Students will cross reference the source on the chosen notation devi ce. Students will summarize each supporting detail on the chosen notation device. Sharing and reflecting: Students will upload to a D2L dropbox the answers to the following questions: Which method of note taking did you choose to use? Why? Why is it important to cross reference the note to the source? Should notes be taken word for word or in a summary format?

Why?

Day 3- Citing sources using MLA Format Direct instruction: Ask students: What does it mean to cite a source? Why is it important to cite your sources? What is plagiarism? When you summarize do you need to site your sources? If you dont is that considered plagiarism? Using the Purdue Owl website discuss the basics of in text citations o Point out that when using direct quotes or summarizing students need to use a lead in phrase. Give examples. Place reference lead in sheet on ilearn with other resources. Using the Purdue Owl website discuss the basics of bibliographic citations Point out that the website organizes the information based on type of source Introduce students to easybib.com- talk about how easy bib is not fool proof, and you must know the MLA rules to be sure that your bibliography is correct. Modeling and guided practice: Using easybib.com show students how to create a citation for one book and one website. Independent practice: Using easybib.com: Students will create a bibliographic citation of one web source of their choice Students will create a bibliographic citation of the bible. Students will create a bibliographic citation of one book. Students will create one in-text citation of a web source. Sharing and reflecting: Uploading to a drop box on the D2L platform students will answer the following questions. Which do you prefer, easy bib, or creating citations using the Purdue Owl website? Why? What advice would you give someone creating a citation using easybib.com

Day 1 Reflection I arrived about 8 minutes before class started. Mr. Martin and I briefly reviewed the planned lesson. Mr. Martin pulled up the research pathfinder, and projected it on the smart board. Students were attentive and engaged in the presentation of RADCAB. The website was displayed on the smart board, and I explained each criteria of RADCAB with examples. I engaged students by asking them questions about their experiences with website research. A few students asked questions. The independent practice consisted of students evaluating two websites that they may use for their project. At this point students asked more specific questions. Some inquired about the currency criteria and wanted to know specifically how old the website needed to be. That was an opportunity to re-teach that criteria. I explained to students that the currency depends on your topic. Some topics require the most up-to-date information, but in their case, for biblical studies, the information does not need to be the most current. I pointed out that in this case, authority was more important. Day 2 Reflection This session was one week after the first session. I again arrived in time to review the lessons with Mr. Martin, and pull up the pathfinder on the smart board. Students in all 3 classes were attentive

Leahr 10

and engaged. I started the sessions by commenting on the students discussion post and taking questions about the prior assignment. Students did not have questions about the website evaluation assignment. The lesson proceeded with me talking to students about topical outlines, and how, based on their assignment their topical outline will be guided by each verse that they were assigned. I also showed them examples of a topical and detailed outline of bible passages. These materials were accessible on the pathfinder. We then moved to the note taking aspect of the lesson. I reviewed the notecard method that students were taught in my eight grade research class. Then I showed them the PowerPoint method created by the Big 6 creators. I walked them through the use of the PowerPoint method using the template that is found on the path finder. Students were very receptive to this method, and asked questions about printing it and some formatting questions about adding sources to the cards. I suggested that they make a source slide/card, and then use the same method of referencing the source # on each note slide/card. Day 3 Reflection The same preliminary procedures were executed before the start of class. Once seated, I commented on their discussion post from our last session. Many students were unclear about the suggestion that I made to take notes word for word on to note cards, and then paraphrase latter when writing the paper. That portion of last weeks lesson needed to be reviewed Students then turned their attention to the smart board. I played the plagiarism video, and discussed the key concepts. Using their devices, students took the online quiz, and uploaded their results to a drop box. We also went over the answers together as a class. Students were surprised to learn that turning in a paper that they wrote for one class into another class is considered plagiarism. Some also did not agree with having to cite internet sources. They felt that if it was on the internet, it was open for anyone to use. We had a very lively discussion about that issue. This was an opportunity to reinforce the point that if it is not your own original thought, then you should cite your source.
