  2. 2. In addition, we have about four students (it's a larger section than last semester) who are proposing to study diverse texts in the ELA classroom, e.g. resisting the "literary canon," representation of LGBTQ, using graphic novels, contemporary texts to motivate reluctant readers. For this reason, I think it may be helpful (if possible) to show them the ALA and YALSA Web sites and the resources available there for teachers who want to diversify their classroom libraries. You may know more about those sites and available resources than I do. Last, it seems only a few know APA style; they are all users of MLA, as you might expect. So anything you can say in support of learning APA would be greatly appreciated!

MaterialsRequired: Handout,worklive fromthe website withstudentandprofessorsuggestions. Reflection We cover a lot of ground in this session but for the most part these students seem familiar with Education Full Text just not some of the other research techniques like working backwards from a citation. Dr. Lubke has some “favorite” journals so we usually use those as examples for browsing and searching full text journal platforms. Also gave a quick plug for ILL and buy not borrow (if they request LGBTQ YA materials to develop lesson plans, there is a chance we may purchase those titles instead of just borrowing them).
