After 7pm central time, I am taking a weekend break from the internet. I’m betting I’ll last about five hours before I’m crawling on my hands and knees asking the interwebs to please take me back.
Before I take my break, I thought it’d be a good idea to post a to-do list to motivate me for the next couple of weeks. I have readers (according to my stats page), and if I don’t deliver on my promised posts, I’m sure you’ll be very disappointed.
Here’s what I’m working on now for future posts:
A ratings/rankings system for research resources: This is kind of my attempt at providing some stability in chart form to choosing resources. Of course, resources can vary widely in their uses and relevance depending on the situation, so this may be one of those projects that’s in revision mode forever. Still, I’ll post something next week.
2) Summary Series: I think it might be cool to read and summarize some scholarly articles available in the library science journals. I’ll focus mainly on information literacy and critical thinking but may summarize whatever other articles tickle my fancy. This is my way of keeping current in the literature and doing a kind of literature review.
Imaginary Lessons and Lesson Plans: I’ve got some ideas for critical thinking and information literacy coursework that I’d like to get on paper. I may post lessons or worksheets or possible classroom scenarios. Some may not be suitable for all classrooms (I have one weird idea involving Crack.com articles).
Logic skills/terminology: I’m terrible at some of the terminology when it comes to logic. Not all of it, but it’d be nice to force myself into a terminology tutorial.
Darwin Day!!! I haven’t read On the Origin of Species. Can you believe that? Darwin Day is February 12th this year, so I’m going to read the book this week and post some Darwin Day themed posts on the big day.
Is that enough for now?
Have a great weekend.
