English 1010 Lesson Plans: Online

English 1010 Library Instruction

Every section of English 1010 is partnered with a librarian from the USU Libraries Learning & Engagement Services team. We created the following Canvas modules to help instructors meet learning outcomes in Information Literacy. Your partnered librarian can also do a Canvas post to let students know that they can reach out to them directly via email for research help.

We are very flexible! We can adapt these lessons or work out something specific to your goals. We find that the concepts highlighted here are areas students struggle with and we have had success in teaching them new strategies to help develop these research skills. We are excited to work with you! If you have questions, contact your assigned librarian or Katie Strand (
