Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"There is much to be said for finding and adhering to an information literacy model that flows smoothly and intuitively, yet is thorough and concrete enough to be taught easily. Eisenberg and Berkowitz's Big6 is certainly the most widely promoted and student-friendly taxonomy around, and this secondary take on what was previously a K-8 model provides a compact, technologically updated, remarkably accessible template for both library media specialists and classroom teachers. Part I details the rationale for and implementation of the Big6/Little12 model, while Part II provides clear lesson/unit plans and worksheets for all of the Big6 steps, individually and collectively. Reproducible forms, instructional tools, and evaluative matrices will simplify an already clean conceptual model. A great resource for all school librarians."

Explains the approach and the rationale behind it, and discusses specific strategies for building Big6 skills into existing instructional programs and creating new lessons and units. Includes many sample Big6 instructional ideas, along with checklists, worksheets for use with students, and evaluation forms, which can provide the basis for developing an information and technology skills instructional program.
