Library Assignment Description: The assignment my students will be preparing after this session is an inquiry essay, wherein they're deriving a focused research question that they'll explore in a 4-page essay. The question will revolve around our theme "Environmentalism, Sustainability, and Social Justice," and it's intended to be focused, though not necessarily answerable--i.e., I'm encouraging theoretical and more personal questions as opposed to practical questions. Perhaps a question like: How does Mizzou explore the role of diversity and social justice on campus through its botanical gardens? I'm trying to teach my students to be more investigative, critical thinkers as opposed to approaching essays through the "prove it" format.
