Merced College

The Merced College faculty librarians are partnering with the BSSOT Grant on campus to design and plan for a new Interdisciplinary Literacy Center on campus.  As part of this effort, Karrie Bullock and Joey Merritt are enrolled in a six-week Reading Apprenticeship train- a- trainer training.  This gives them an opportunity to partner with discipline faculty to design research sessions incorporating the techniques they have learned such as personal reading histories.  Dee Near is part of a Habits of Mind team, and is helping design a First Year Experience course for the campus which will include information literacy as well as habits of mind for a college student. Merced College library is also excited to sponsor our first Poetry Slam on May 5
