A Guide for the Library Media Specialist
The focus of this book is Collaboration, and the author describes how to make the transition from teaching library skills in isolation to helping students become Information Literate by integrating, with the classroom teacher Information Literacy Standards into the classroom curriculum, standards, and content areas.
Crow outlines and defines the information literacy standards, presents a step-by-step guide to collaborate with teachers, shares strategies in building flexible scheduling, shows assessment strategies, and gives examples to build motivational programs that support the information literacy program. The book and CD provide proven lesson plans, supporting materials, and templates. The CD contains 120 files – print-only PDF files of lesson plans and activities; WORD files to develop your own collaborative lesson plans plus files to customize those already provided; and reproducible activities to use in the library media center.
