The 26 instructional units featured in this guide are designed to encourage cooperative planning between the library media specialist and classroom teachers in the development of programs that will teach students to locate information by integrating research skills into regular classroom units of instruction. At least one teaching unit with learner outcomes has been included in each content area, with an indication of the particular grade level at which that unit should be emphasized. It is noted that these units can be adapted to other grade levels or to different methods of instruction. Some units related to pure enjoyment and pleasure in reading are also included. Most of the units are applicable to more than one grade level with approximately half of them aimed at kindergarten through third grade and the rest at fourth through seventh grades. Information provided for individual units includes some or all of the following: suggested curriculum applications; a goal; the responsibilities of the teacher and the media specialist; learner outcomes; learning activities and suggestions; a list of resources needed, including arts and crafts materials; a bibliography; and patterns and instructions for various projects.
