Call for chapters: The Critical Thinking About Sources Cookbook

There is a call for proposed chapters for a forthcoming ACRL publication: The Critical Thinking About Sources Cookbook. 600-800 word proposals are due by July 16 2018. Go to https://bit.ly/2JNtqNY for full information about proposed sections etc. (you have to say which section your contribution would be suitable for) "We’re looking for lesson plans or projects that support early college students in developing their critical thinking skills, with a particular focus on critical thinking about sources. We are seeking informative and approachable plans that librarians can implement to support undergraduate students in developing vital critical thinking skills that can help them succeed in college and beyond. Ensuring that students can not only identify different types of sources, but can also delve more deeply into how and why different types of sources are produced, can be a way to empower students with the skills they need to find, evaluate, and use information for a variety of purposes, in college and beyond." This is part of a "cookbook" series e.g. the Library Instruction Cookbook
