SIFTing and Four-Moving Online: Opportunities and Challenges with Teaching Lateral Reading through an Online Module

Research on "lateral reading" from the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) and from Mike Caulfield has informed how many librarians think about teaching source evaluation. In this session we will share our experiences in developing a pilot online interactive module about lateral reading strategies for source evaluation that draws and builds on the Four Moves and SIFT. We will highlight three key considerations when developing our project: 1) identifying stumbling blocks of practicing and teaching about lateral reading, 2) developing strategic scaffolding, and 3) approaching the Four Moves and SIFT as complementary models.

Participants will:
  • Become more informed about "lateral reading" strategies and their value (for example, "Four Moves" and SIFT).
  • Reflect on opportunities and challenges with practicing and teaching about lateral reading.
