  • The thing to realize with our Information Literacy Standards is that there is alignment between local, state and national standards. This chart does not have a column for local because the mcps information literacy standards ARE the state standards.When students are acquiring information literacy standards, they are also acquiring technology standards.In order to create this presentation for you, we organized the big ideas around our six standards. We also asked the middle school media specialists to let us know what they wished their 6th grade students knew and were able to do in order to be successful in middle school.
  • Our information literacy curriculum is a 17-page document for K-8. the skills students are to acquire is banded; pk-1, 2-3, and 4-5. The tasks go from guided to minimal support to complete independence on some of the standards.
  • Standard 1: Define and refine problem or question. Follow an inquiry process to define a problem, formulate questions, and refine either or both to meet a personal and/or assigned information need.What is my information need? Follow an inquiry process to connect the process to real life…
  • In order to support the acquisition of this standard, here are some specific “big ideas” that students need to acquire. Here is a quote that resonated with several of the middle school media specialists on the need for students to learn a research method.
  • Standard 2: Locate and Evaluate Resources and Sources: Follow an inquiry process to identify, locate, evaluate, and select resources and sources in a wide variety of formats to meet the information need in an ethical manner.
  • In order to support the acquisition of standard 2, students should be able to know and be able to do these tasks. Many Middle School Media Specialists stated how important it was for rising middle school students to know the basics in locating information….beginning with alphabetization!
  • Standard 3:Find, Generate, Record, and Organize Data/Information: Follow an inquiry process to find, generate, record, and organize information relevant to the information need in an ethical manner.
  • In order to support the acquisition of standard 3, students need to acquire these concepts. Noodletools is centrally purchased in mcps for all grade levels and at a minimum, elementary students need to understand what it does and how they generate a basic citation, even if it produced as a group with the teacher.
  • Standard 4: Interpret Recorded Data/Information: Follow an inquiry process to interpret recorded data/information to create new understandings and knowledge related to the information need in an ethical manner.
  • In order to support the acquisition of standard 4, rising middle school students need experience with these tasks. Many middle school media specialists spend a lot of time discussing the differences between resources and the importance of using multiple resources in order to create a sound research finding.When is it appropriate to use a free, internet website and what is the difference between it and information from a subscription database?
  • Standard 5: Share Findings/Conclusions: Follow an inquiry process to share findings/conclusions in an appropriate format to support written, oral, and multimedia information products and evaluate the products and the processes in an ethical manner.
  • In order for students to acquire standard 5, students need to be able to perform these tasks. It is important to remember that not only is important to provide multiple ways for students to demonstrate what they learn, but sometimes they need to know the basics of using tools in order to create their final presentation.
  • Standard 6: Appreciate Literature and Life-long Learning: Demonstrate and appreciation of literature and multimedia as a reflection of human experience and use the inquiry process for life-long learning.
  • Acquiring standard 6 involves understanding these broad concepts.
