  • Ask students to define strategy. Define strategy together.    Students generate ideas for finding books in the library. Write these down on whiteboard.
  • or start screencast here
  • Explain this searches everywhere in the catalog. Say I am looking for books about dogs. If I search for dogs anywhere, my search results will include books that are about dogs, but also books by the author Mr. Dog which might not be what I am looking for. Define search results.
  • Demonstrate searching for this title online. Demonstrate clicking on details. Scroll over and explain all information that answers the questions on this slide.
  • I am lost and confused in the library. Can you tell me how to find books about dogs? Ask students to show me how to do a subject search. Students give verbal directions. Prompts are: what do I write here? (search bar). Which button do I press? Do I press title? Do I press author? Now what do I do? For now, any results retrieved through a subject search for dogs are fine.
  • Give directions regarding completing worksheet. Call students by name to move to computer workstation. Have these workstations numbered, or labeled with team name.   Students move to computers as I call out names.    (how many students to a computer?)   Worksheets at each station (do not pass out). Students work individually or in small groups to complete worksheet (if three students to a computer, assign “keyboard expert” by pulling names randomly from a hat. Explain the next library lesson, these students will not be in the running for computer use so that everyone gets a turn.   Contingincy is booktalks and report back on student predictions.
