The Big6 Workshop Handbook: Implementation and Impact
Today's students need information literacy skills more than ever before. While essential skills did include reading, writing, and arithmetic, there is now an essential fourth "R"---Research! "Research" means "information literacy," and the best way to teach it is using the Big6 approach.
The Big6 was first developed in 1987 as a simple, flexible, and broadly applicable approach to teaching and learning essential information literacy skills. At its most fundamental level, the Big6 is a six-stage process model for information problem-solving and decision-making. For over 20 years, the successful Big6 formula has been constantly expanded and refined with the input of thousands of teachers and many more students---in both public and private education settings.
Today's latest incarnation of The Big6™ Workshop Handbook includes the Super3 process; using the Big6 to teach technology skills; integration with subject area curricula, assessment, and standardized testing; connecting with national, state and school district standards; and micro- and macro-level planning. Everyone from classroom teachers and teacher-liberarians to administrators and parents will find it invaluable.
