Context of Activity or Assignment

This document was created as part of a faculty co-operative at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) that focused on how to teach synthesis of information to undergraduate students. This co-op was funded by CSUMB’s Center for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment. The co-op members met during Fall 2019 and shared techniques, thoughts, and resources for teaching synthesis. At the conclusion of the co-op, each member contributed a product, whether it be a lesson plan, assignment, prompt, or resource list, to be added to this document and shared with the CSUMB community and beyond.
