This lesson plan encourages first-year students to explore career information using popular sources and reliable reference sources. Students will become familiar with the Information Cycle and primary/secondary sources. They will use an inquiry-based source evaluation worksheet to compare sources about a career path that they find interesting. This activity facilitates class discussion on information creation, types of sources, and the usefulness of information literacy in everyday life.
