Based on many years of columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly, authors, Daniel Callison and Leslie Preddy present key terms in a working theoretical model that may be used in developing and understanding the power of information inquiry in instruction. This book is both a revision and an update to Key Words, Concepts and Methods for Information Age Instruction (LMS Associates, 2003). New columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly are included and entirely new Key Words for Instruction are introduced. These key terms have immediate value for staff development purposes. They are reproducible and would be useful in building year-long study group programs in schools and libraries or as weekly discussion handouts. An entirely new section on Inquiry has been added. An in-depth and invaluable section of resources and web sites has been updated.

In addition to the theoretical base, the authors include much practical instructional application for immediate use. Like, one stop shopping, The Blue Book on Information Age Inquiry, Instruction and Literacy is the new definitive work on information inquiry and information literacy instruction. The authors have thoughtfully blended theories in education and library science in a book that finally gives us a picture of the huge role of the school library media specialist as both a teacher and a librarian who needs to understand, interpret and instruct students in the skill of inquiry, the basis of all learning. This is a basic purchase for all library and information literacy programs K-12 and for school library educators. This is the Blue Book on library and information literacy instruction—a must have.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A revision and update of Key Words, Concepts and Methods for Information Age Instruction (2003), this text boasts a new section on inquiry, new key words for instruction, and updated lists of print and Internet sources. Part 1 introduces the concepts of information inquiry, providing foundational documents and exploring search and use models, information literacy, standards, the instructional role of library media specialists, online inquiry learning, and resource management. Part 2 offers concrete examples of inquiry applied to the middle school student research process, and supplies reproducible pages for classroom use. Part 3 discusses and defines 51 key terms. Entries here are several pages in length and include citations and references. Indispensable for all school media specialists, this book will also appeal to other readers, who will be impressed by its well-organized design, thoroughness, and practicality."

Booklist/Professional Reading

"This book is by far the most comprehensive collection of articles, ideas, models, and other resources on inquiry and information literacy. It may seem overwhelming because of its 660 pages, but it is the foundation of a central component of the school library program."

-

Teacher Librarian

"If we believe that information literacy is a lifelong, collaborative, problem-solving process, then it is essential that, at some point in our work with each student, we assess their ability to apply knowledge in the context of real tasks…in authentic projects. For guidance, we can turn to The Blue Book on Information Age Inquiry, Instruction and Literacy where evaluations and assessments suited to complex performances typical of inquiry learning are identified."

-

Knowledge Quest

"[A] one stop sourcebook designed to serve as a theoretical model for designing and implementing a K-12 information literacy program….Daniel Callison and Leslie Preddy have created an excellent resource for K-12 library media specialists, but colleges and universities will also find it extremely useful. Its greatest strength is the thoroughness with which this subject is covered, and even those who have been teaching information literacy for many years will find new ideas and resources here."

-

Reference & User Services Quarterly

"Starred RevieW Finally we have a volume that explains in detail what school library media specialists and teacher-librarian types do! Although intended as a manuscript for classroom study, this title is a perfect tool for the validity of a great school library program….This volume is for all librarians/teachers and their principals, colleagues, and school committee members. This is a great compendium of idea stimulators as well as explanations of our methods. Next time someone asks, What do you teach in library? just hand them this title. Highly Recommended."
