Livingston-Steuben-Wyoming Counties Board of Cooperative Educational Services, Mt. Morris, NY.
A syllabus intended to prepare high school students for college level library research and to provide students with skills for lifelong learning is being created by a committee of high school and college librarians and classroom teachers. The syllabus is designed to be taught by a team consisting of a library media specialist, English teacher(s), and a social studies or other subject area teacher. This field test version of the syllabus outlines: (1) activities for the assigning teacher(s) and the librarian; (2) the concepts/skills to be taught by the librarian; (3) the enabling concepts/skills to be concurrently taught by the assigning/English teacher (unless they were taught previously); and (4) the affective concepts/skills provided by the course and connections to be made with students' personal experience. Topics covered include time budgeting for long-term assignments, listening skills, note-taking skills, reading skills, the use of library and other resources, information evaluation and interpretation, critical thinking skills, the composition of a research paper, and the oral presentation of information. It is noted that the final version of this syllabus will include sample unit plans for interdepartmental teaching. A 10-item bibliography is provided. (ESR)
