Teaching Online Research to Elementary Students: Trends & Challenges This session will focus on the necessity of teaching online research skills to elementary students and will explore the challenges this brings, such as identifying the appropriate age to teach certain research concepts. Strategies and resources for teaching online research will be provided. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their own experiences and methods for teaching young students how to research online.

Judging a Book by its Cover. . .and other Elements This session will use the Peritextual Analysis Framework to guide the evaluation of nonfiction books. The framework, developed by librarians at Florida State University, encourages students to consider the various elements of a text and assess the quality of the work. During the session, participants will apply the framework to selected texts and discuss the practicality of using the framework in the classroom.
