Here is everything you need to develop and teach an information literacy curriculum that is integrated with core subject areas. Over twenty lessons (complete with learning objectives, instructional guidelines, and ready-to-use teaching tools) cover keyword research, library and library materials organization, using nonfiction books, using the library catalog, using online databases, using the Internet, note-taking, creating bibliographies, and more. You will also find planning and assessment forms, checklists, tables, and worksheets for developing, implementing, and instructing your information literacy programs - all reproduced in the book and accompanying CD-ROM. In all new sections, Langhorne walks readers through establishing a mission statement, utilizing standards and benchmarks, and using literature as the foundation for information literacy. Completely updated and expanded, this edition includes proven strategies for collaborating with administrators and teachers, developing assessment tools, and communicating results. This all-in-one resource - with over 100 pages of model lesson plans and student worksheets - gives you the directions for developing a successful program and ready-to-go tools to implement it. The CD-ROM contains the forms, handouts, and transparencies needed to teach the lesson plans and units formatted in Microsoft Word.
