What is information literacy and why is it important?
According to the American Library Association, "Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to 'recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.'" With the plethora of information available, through resources found on the internet and social media, finding high-quality information is harder than ever! Being able to use information technologies, such as academic databases, effectively to find and manage information, and the ability to critically evaluate information, is a skill required not just in academics, but also from today's employers.
Describe the use of Alliteration in Emily Dickinson's poem "Much Madness is Divinest Sense." How does this poetic device challenge readers?
American author Emily Dickinson uses alliteration of the "m" sound in the title of the poem "Much Madness is Divinest Sense" as well as throughout the poem itself to encourage readers to think about what it means to be mad. The poem shows that things that are considered "mad" are actually truthful and sane and things that are considered normal and sensible should be considered mad.
