Published on

In this session, we will discuss information literacy concepts that school librarians should cover with secondary students in preparation for college. These include "Revving up Students for Research" and explaining the "Method to the Madness". These directly relate to the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (ACRL). Participants will leave this webinar with strategies and activities that can be implemented for use in their libraries the next day. Speakers: Bridget Kratt and Wendy Grojean-Loewenstein, UNO Library Science Education Program.

  1. 1. Easing Information AnxietyTeaching Information Literacy Strategies and Skills for College Preparedness By: Wendy Grojean Loewenstein and Bridget Kratt
  2. 2. Inspiration • Previous teaching experiences in K-12 environments • Current work in the College of Education • E-course through ALA with Joanna Burkhart Burkhart, J. & MacDonald, M. (2010) Teaching information literacy: 50 standards-based exercises for college students. Chicago: American Library Association
  3. 3. Presentation Overview Referring to the Association of College and Research Libraries Information literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education
  4. 4. ACRL Information Literacy Standards 1. The information literate student determines the nature and extent of the information needed. 2. The information literate student accesses needed information effectively and efficiently. 3. The information literate student evaluates information and its sources critically and incorporates selected information into his or her knowledge base and value system. 4. The information literate student, individually or as a member of a group, uses information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose. 5. The information literate student understands many of the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information and accesses and uses information ethically and legally.
  5. 5. Look familiar? Inquiry models: • Big6 • Stripling Model of Inquiry • McKenzie Research Cycle
  6. 6. Collaboration is key Collaboration with content area teachers and awareness of curriculum is the first step to alleviating information anxiety.
  7. 7. Information anxiety “Information anxiety is a feeling of being overwhelmed that comes when confronting a large information task” (p.11). McCane, S. (2012). [image]. Retrieved from http://www.empowernetwork.com/joeymc/blog/what-is-information-overload-how-to-avoid-it/
  8. 8. Breaking up the “big job” into smaller tasks 1. Collaborate with a classroom teacher to create a research task that has clear and specific objectives 2. List or circle in the text of the assignment any and all words or terms that a student would need to understand in order to accomplish this project. 3. List any and all things/tasks a student would need to know how to do in order to complete this assignment.
  9. 9. Example Research Task Write a Research Paper In ten word-processed pages due in two weeks, explain the causes and effects of homelessness in urban areas of New England. Your paper must have a research question, thesis statement, introduction, body, and conclusion. Sources for your paper must be cited using MLA citation style and must include the following: five major books on the topic, five articles from appropriate scholarly journals, five high-quality websites, statistics, and five expert opinions on the topic.
