Sara Zoroufy is a high school senior and the Research Teaching Assistant for the Castilleja School library. In this role, Sara observes research lessons and unpacks how she and other students think about sources. Sara chose to spend the last academic year studying source literacy; this year, her focus will be on teaching how to distinguish evidence from argument. She has published articles on these topics in the Association of Independent School’s Independent Ideas blog and the California School Library Association Journal. Her work helps inform lesson planning.
