Turn your students into lifelong learners! Pathways to Knowledge(r) is an information process model that teachers and school librarians use with students to help them learn to gather, evaluate, and use information. The Pathways Model follows many of the Information Literacy Standards set forth by AASL and AECT and provides a structure for students to pursue inquiry learning. The five chapters focus on the Pathways Model, inquiry learning, instructional strategies, electronic tools and resources that enable the research process, and strategies for changing the curriculum to a focus on inquiry learning. The appendix includes three thematic units, graphic organizers, and reproducible planning guides. A very useful resource for K-12 educators and school library media specialists!
