Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For high school teachers and librarians, this resource book contains lessons, checklists, and assessments based on the standards from Information Power's Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning and the Association for College and Research Libraries' (ACRL), Information Literacy Standards for Higher Education. After discussing each standard, lessons (which are tailored to match specific ACRL standards) are presented, followed by checklists and assessments for students and instructors. A chapter on integrating information literacy skills into the curriculum rounds out the book."

Reference & Research Book News

"[I]f you want a guide for teaching the research paper, then this one is worth examining because of its short, pithy teaching segments that can be prepared for almost-instant delivery. At the moment, there are efforts by the American Association of School Librarians and the Association of College and Research Libraries to cross the gap between high school senior and first-year college student. This guide helps build that bridge."

Teacher Librarian

"This book provides important resources for secondary school librarians who need it and fills a gap in the field."

AGERANGE: Ages 11 to Adult.

Written for high school educators, this resource uses the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education to prepare students to be information literate, or lifelong learners capable of locating and applying information productively, with these skills readying them for college level research assignments. These standards and their indicators are analyzed and discussed, followed by a literature review of information literacy. Next are forty separate lessons tailored to the standards, including discussions of thesis statements and note taking, in reproducible worksheet formats that provide space for responses. Next are checklists citing necessary competencies for standards and formative assessments. The majority is teacher assessments of students, but three self-assessments for both students and teachers are included. Last is curriculum integration of literacy skills with reproducible tasks for educators and librarians. These complicated activities may be helpful, but busy educators completing worksheets seems unrealistic. Certainly it is a worthy topic, but its overall presentation is unattractive and dubious. Too little space between sentences and paragraphs creates difficult, uninviting reading, the narratives are often laborious with explanations overly detailed, and its many quotations and references (widely varied regarding dates and sources) contribute to making the book more reminiscent of a term paper than a professional text. Regardless, although lesson content is essentially of quality, creating information literate students via worksheets appears self-defeating. Educators shouldadapt these assignments for best practice, but realistically some will not, thus becoming another contributor to students' difficulties with information literacy. Reviewer: Lisa A. Hazlett
