A rubric approach to historical research

Aula Magna Regina
In order to better meet and enhance the information needs of undergraduate History majors, at The American University in Cairo, the History liaison librarian and a faculty member collaborated to embed and assess information literacy skills in History 420: Historical Theory and Methodology. This standard historical research and writing course is required of all undergraduate History majors, which made it an ideal opportunity to ensure all students receive subject-specific research training. Together the course instructor and librarian developed course materials, designed a one-shot instruction session, and created rubrics to illustrate student success.
