The Teacher Lab is an information literacy and research skills course to help educators (teachers and school librarians) feel more confident finding resources for their classrooms.
Educators will receive an in-depth orientation to the modern public library, a special collection in an archive, and general internet tools such as Google and Wikipedia. Additionally, learn how to apply core research skills across all disciplines, handle primary sources, and evaluate resources ranging from scholarly articles to tweets.
Educators will leave the course with a thorough understanding of how to locate a variety of texts and media to enrich the student learning process. In order to receive a passing grade, educators must create an annotated resource list in support of an instructional unit or objective.
Teacher Lab courses and workshops qualify towards the New York State Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) credit 100 hour requirement. Teacher Lab courses are also certified for "P" credit (in progress) for NYC public school teachers.
