CMU Libraries -- LIB 197

CMU Libraries -- LIB 197 Well, I taught my first class for my LIB 197 course. I have 25 students. Much to my surprise, most of them are upperclassmen. I think they are looking for an easy class. I probably will deliver. I will make them work but it is only a one credit hour class and it is about research, not rocket science. I stressed attendance and doing the work. I also used the Cardiff Giant story which I blogged last week. It did grab their attention. I opened with it. I closed with an ice breaker where I had them come up with social issues in their neighbothoods and how library research can help them in solving the problems. All in all, a good first class.
