Selecting course readings
Why teach with library sources?
They’re easily accessible, free to your students, and multi-faceted.
Using a variety of primary sources, research articles, and other scholarly works in addition to a textbook adds rich context that is often missing from tertiary sources. Understanding the historical and social context can help your students not only master the content of your course, but also develop critical thinking and information literacy skills.
You can also easily customize and update readings as the semester progresses in response to your students’ learning needs.
