Developed for library media specialists and teachers, this K-12 guide presents a model for combining library media skills with the regular instructional program. Following a K-12 scope and sequence for library and information skills, 15 elementary and junior high school units and 12 high school units are presented. The elementary and junior high units deal with media center orientation, animal stories, folk and fairy tales, tall tales, mystery, informational books, poetry, authors and illustrators, biographies, historical fiction, adventure, fantasy, science fiction, Newbery and Caldecott award-winning books, and the Sequoyah Children's Book Award Program (Oklahoma). All units provide student objectives and activities. Most units contain art and writing ideas, glossaries, worksheets, games, or puzzles. The first high school unit is a fully developed Civil War unit which integrates library media skills. The remaining 11 fragmentary units deal with topics designed to reinforce library research skills and to provide opportunity for independent work. These units include goals, objectives, activities, and some worksheets. The appendices include a study skills scope and sequence for grades 7-9 and 10-12; a bibliography of resources; a list of organizations or publishers who publish, or sponsor contests for, children's writing or art work; and an answer key for the word puzzles.
