Bsi And Libraries Conference Group Activity Document Transcript

  • 1. GROUP ACTIVITY: Libraries and Effective Practices in Basic Skills Activity Summary: Participants got into groups based upon the numbers on their name tags, which also corresponded to numbers posted on the walls. Groups then chose one or two effective practices from a pre- made list and took 5 minutes to rewrite the effective practice to make it apply directly to the library. Then the groups, discussed/brainstormed ideas that addressed the following question: “Based on the effective practice(s) you have chosen, what library services programs and/or activities can you create that will help basic skills students be more successful? Give specific strategies for implementing these programs/activities.” Participants spent 35 minutes working on this group activity. At the end of the activity, each group wrote their ideas on poster paper and hung them on the wall for others to view. Following are the ideas each group derived during this activity.
