Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
The heart of this book is a four-day diary of scripted research lessons based on authentic teaching experience. Stanley has not included any information about her qualifications or background, but a dedication indicates that she worked at Hanover High School in the Glendale Unified School District (CA) in 1997-1998. Charts and forms outline the practical series of lessons. These can be used as handouts or viewed on the overhead. To make these graphic aids truly useful, a CD-ROM could have been included so that they could be customized. The focus is on the use of sub-topics and note-taking as the "missing links" of the research process. The assumption is that a teacher will allow the librarian to take three days to teach the research process, which may be a hard sell in some settings. However, there are some very good practical suggestions regarding collaboration, creating sign-up calendars, and using multiple formats and sources. This is a good effort that will be useful for librarians looking for a way to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum. 1999, Libraries Unltd, 230p, bibliog, index, 28cm, 99-050169, $29.00. Ages Adult. Reviewer: Rita M. Fontinha; Lib. Media Spec., Norwood H.S., Norwood, MA, September 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 5)
School Library Journal
An accessible approach to the "how-to" of doing research, which is broken down into steps that include developing a topic and subtopics, note taking, and sorting notes. Stanley successfully melds theory with practice and addresses real problems faced by library media specialists. She also illustrates how, despite programming constraints, it is possible to get results that will ultimately benefit students in their research. The author correctly asserts that a necessary part of the process is letting teaching staff know what the library media specialist can do for them, thus encouraging more successful student writing and, ultimately, making the teaching process easier. She also notes some effective public-relations techniques to use to this end. The book includes templates and sample lesson plans for three days of instruction leading up to individual hands-on research, rough drafts, and finished creative projects.-Karen Patricia Smith, Queens College Graduate School of Library and Information Studies, Flushing, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
