7 Wiping out the Wipe-Out Effect: Jan Frazier, Meg Frazier, Deb Burgauer---Bradley University. Principles Instructional Design Meg Frazier Create questions and situations that ask the student to perform realistic tasks in realistic settings. Provide relevant practice of the skill in question. Help them find the context clues that will aid memory. Asking student to make decisions helps to get information into memory and aids in retrieval practice. Providing feedback for incorrect answers allows students to correct misinformation and practice retrieving information from memory. Repetition and Spacing can aid in reinforcement. From Robert Mager and Will Thalheimer

8 Wiping out the Wipe-Out Effect: Jan Frazier, Meg Frazier, Deb Burgauer---Bradley University. What I Do in Exercises Meg Frazier Ask them where they should go to find, rather then tell them where to go Have them look for context clues in the search tool that will help them either revise their search or find more “like this” Only go over the pieces of the exercise packet with which students have the most problems Use the framework questions to connect with previous ideas, look at common misperceptions

9 Wiping out the Wipe-Out Effect: Jan Frazier, Meg Frazier, Deb Burgauer---Bradley University. Finding Books via the Library Catalog. Names: Find the library Catalog from the Library Web Page Read the Search examples on the Catalog page What search would you do, if you know the title of the book you are looking for? When would you do an Anyword Anywhere search? And when would you do a Subject search? Key words are words that relate to the topic of the book you are looking for: Write down 2 or 3 keywords that relate to a book you need for a paper on Educational Reform. Try some of your keywords to find one book Where is the book located? What is its call number? Make sure you are in the full-view of the record of the book and look at the Subject Headings (Subject LCSH) Follow the Subject Heading links to other books. Keep following and looking until you can write down 3 or 4 subject headings that relate to the book you need for paper on Educational Reform.

10 Wiping out the Wipe-Out Effect: Jan Frazier, Meg Frazier, Deb Burgauer---Bradley University. Reference Book Browsing and Using the Catalog Go to the Reference Area and find your team’s Reference Book. Use the Outline of the Library of Congress Classification System and find the Class Code (2 letter beginning of the Call number) for your team’s reference book. Note the Discipline and the Class Code from the Library of Congress Classification System. Using your given reference book, find an article that could be used as the topic for a paper or speech. Note the article title. Now find the library catalog on the library’s web page, (library.bradley.edu), then search for books that would be useful for the topic (of the exercise). Note the keywords used to search. Click on the hot linked title of the book and examine the Subject (headings). Follow the subject headings links to other books. Keep following and looking until you can write down 3 or 4 subject headings that relate to the topic (of the exercise).

Index (Article Database) Exercise What is the link on the Library’s web page that leads to indexes that can be used to find articles? Now look for the link that will lead you to Indexes organized by their title. Then clink on the link for the index Academic Search Premiere. Compare Two Searches: Search one: at the main search page, search School Reform in the default (keyword) mode of searching. Search two: at the main search page, search School Reform as a Subject search. What are some of the differences between the Keyword search and the Subject search? Part II Switch to a new index, Project Muse. Project Muse allows you to browse Library of Congress Subject headings as a way to find articles. Click on the Article Search tab, and then from the search page look for the “Browse Subject Headings for Articles” option from the Options box. Type Educational into the search box and then browse the subject headings to find 3 subject headings that will give you most articles that would be useful for a paper on school reform. List the 3 subject headings. Part III Switch to a new index, Wilson Omnifile. Wilson Omnifile, like most indexes, offers ways to revise, focus or narrow your search. Use the search School Reform from the main search page and then examine the results page for 3 ways that the index shows to revise, focus or narrow the search. List 3 ways: List of Journals, Magazines and Newspapers What is the link on the Library’s web page that leads to a list of which journals, magazines, or newspapers (periodicals) are available in any format through the library?
