Today's Libraries. A Resource Guide for Teachers.
Ventura County Superintendent of Schools, CA.
This resource guide was developed to provide teachers with ready-to-use activity sheets and suggested discussion topics to teach basic skills students need to use both school and public libraries effectively. Several assumptions were made in developing the guide: students can read at their grade level (although most materials are easily adapted); students know the parts of a book; all materials are housed in the library according to a logical system; and students understand an author's inverted name. Based on these assumptions, the guide includes a variety of teaching aides to help with instruction on how to use a card catalog, microfilm catalog, and computer online catalog. Students receive decoding tips for information found on various types of entries and gain a basic understanding of library terminology. The materials are classified by grade levels, 2-3, 4-6, 6-8, followed by two separate glossaries of vocabulary appropriate for the various levels. A list of suggested independent activities which can be adapted to any grade level is included. A bibliography of recommended supplementary sources concludes the document. (THC)
