Go FIGure: Health Literacy and Freshman Interest Groups
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Mizzou offers over 100 Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs), ranging in topic from "Discovering Science" to "Social Justice Issues." Groups of 15-20 freshmen are assigned to the same residence hall community, enroll together in three large-lecture courses, and enroll in a pro-seminar course in essential skills for college success. In Fall 2010, three "literacy" projects were piloted within the FIG pro-seminar: health literacy, financial literacy, news literacy. This poster examines goals, sessions, and lessons learned from the Health Literacy pilot. Originally presented at Medical Library Association Annual Meeting 2011 (Minneapolis).
