Information Skills at Holt Public Schools: Power in Practice (Grades 6-12).
Gnagi, Anne; And Others
This report describes the activities of a task force composed of classroom teachers and media professionals which was created to develop an information skills curriculum for the Holt (Michigan) Public Schools. Introductory materials include brief descriptions of the school system, library/media personnel, and the curriculum process, as well as a discussion of the Information Skills Task Force, including its rationale, membership, and function, together with its statement of goals for the teaching of information skills. Curriculum objectives for middle (grades 6-7), junior high (grades 8-9), and senior high (grades 10-12) school levels are then presented under three subheadings: orientation, reading, and research. The implementation plan is explained in the context of plans for integrating information skills into the curriculum; for increasing awareness of the curriculum among teaching staff and at the district, public, and professional levels; and for developing a similar curriculum for special education students in K-5. Two final sections present recommendations for human and financial resources and a brief statement on program evaluation procedures. The appendix contains a schematic diagram of the curriculum structure and a table depicting the Holt Public School curriculum review cycle. (25 references) (CGD)
