New Books: Photography

Tags

, ,

Today’s theme is photography. People taking photos on their phones are everywhere today, but a good read and looking at serious photos can help make yours better. These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.

(P.S. Do NOT just keep your photos on your phone! It’s too easy to lose them. Make sure you’ve at least saved them to a cloud account and/or on a backup drive or computer. Plus label at least the important ones with who and what they are. – SSU)

Despite a successful career as a writer, and an exciting life in New York City, Glynnis was constantly reminded she had neither of the things the world expected of a woman her age: a partner or a baby. She knew she was supposed to feel bad about this. After all, single women and those without children are often seen as objects of pity, relegated to the sidelines, or indulgent spoiled creatures who think only of themselves. Glynnis refused to be cast into either of those roles and yet the question remained: What now?There was no good blueprint for how to be a woman alone in the world. She concluded it was time to create one.”

Citizenship Test

Tags

,

Eggbert Saluting

If you are born outside of the United States to parents who aren’t US citizens, one of the big steps to citizenship is taking a test. While students in American schools have government and American history classes that were originally designed to teach all that same stuff that may no longer be true.

Watch this video.

And then download the test to see how you do.

Hint: There are several questions that favored being short over being specific about what they want. On those think about stock phrases like “checks and balances,” etc. They’re looking for a short sentence or well-known phrase. They don’t want a paragraph.

When U.S. marines landed in Mogadishu to take on the warlords, Abdi cheered the arrival of these Americans, who seemed as heroic as those of the movies. Sporting American clothes and dance moves, he became known around Mogadishu as Abdi American, but when the radical Islamist group al-Shabaab rose to power in 2006, it became dangerous to celebrate Western culture. Desperate to make a living, Abdi used his language skills to post secret dispatches, which found an audience of worldwide listeners. Eventually, though, Abdi was forced to flee to Kenya.” And came to America.

Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information by Kurt W. Beyer, Call Number: 0004.092 H798b

She works hard to succeed in the all-male computer industry, is almost brought down by personal problems but survives them, and ends her career as a celebrated elder stateswoman of computing, a heroine to thousands, hailed as the inventor of computer programming…Hopper’s greatest technical achievement was to create the tools that would allow humans to communicate with computers in terms other than ones and zeroes.

Let’s all become fact-checkers

Tags

, ,

Even before the term “fake news” gained widespread use during the 2016 election campaign, Kirkwood faculty widely agreed (72% of those surveyed in 2015) that students need to do better at evaluating information sources used in their research.

We at the Library often get requests from faculty to help teach students how to effectively evaluate information sources, so we are always on the lookout for the best ways to teach these important skills. We have used tools like the CRAAP Test, which does a good job of guiding us to dig more deeply into a source, past its initial appearance. However educator and researcher Mike Caulfield has found that this deep dive to interrogate a source — an approach that serves us well in the world of academics — does us a disservice when we try to apply it to the overload of information in our daily lives and on our social media feeds. What this world of attention-grabbing, misleading headlines, and outright lies needs is a simple and quick approach that is easily understood and learned by students (and teachers and librarians!) of all ages. 

Enter “Four Moves and a Habit”, a process adapted from the work of professional fact-checkers to quickly gauge whether a particular news story, website, or piece of information is worth the time needed for the “deep dive”. Caulfield published an extensive (and free) online book, Web Literacy for Student Fact-Checkers, describing this approach in great detail back in 2017. Since then he has been developing teaching materials and testing the method out on college as well as younger students to fine tune it. As of now these are the tools I recommend for teachers to learn for themselves and use with their students:
