Instruction in Library Media Skills. Supplement to A Guide to School Library Media Programs.
Morante, Rosemary; And Others
This guide, a supplement to the 1982 "Guide to School Library Media Programs," is intended to help library media specialists, teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators improve instruction and school effectiveness by providing an organized approach to teaching information skills in particular content areas. It is divided into three sections: the process of curriculum development, a suggested skills continuum, and sample unit and/or lesson plans. Included are general statements about the competencies that should be mastered by the students. Specific skills which must be tailored to the particular needs, goals, and objectives of the school and school district, are further refined in the "Library Media Skills and Competencies Grades K-12" section of this guide, in which the scope and sequences for skills are analyzed to identify the appropriate grade level(s) and subject area integration for maximum student learning. In "Skills Instruction," 17 sample lesson plans for Grades K through 12 contain sections on objectives, activities, materials/resources, and evaluation. In addition to language arts, social studies, science and mathematics, the lesson plans deal with money, music, art, computers, health, television, sports, and attitudes toward handicaps. An extensive bibliography is included. (THC)
