Achieving Excellence in Library Instruction.
Gilbert, Betty; And Others
The materials included in this document supporting library instruction are divided into two chapters. The first chapter contains bibliographies of instructional materials, professional periodicals, general reference tools, and religious reference tools. Throughout the bibliographies, the approximate cost of the materials is indicated by dollar signs--i.e., one signifying about $25, two $50, three $75, and four $100. The most appropriate grade level is shown if a material's use is to be directed to elementary (E), middle or junior high (J), or senior high school (S). None of the included lists or bibliographies is complete. It is expected that libraries using this guide will add, delete, and change materials to suit their own needs. The second chapter includes sample pages from instructional materials on: (1) bibliographic format; (2) the card catalog; (3) Dewey classification; (4) encyclopedias; (5) dictionary guide words; (6) magazines and "The Reader's Guide"; (7) maps and charts; (8) parts of the book; (9) reference tools; (10) reference sources and strategies; (11) book reports; (12) assignments; and (13) activities for high school students. Appendixes include an author almanac (birthdates of authors); a glossary of 126 library terms that students should know; and a reprint of "Key in to Life," a scope and sequencing of recommended library competencies produced in 1985 by the School Library Media Division of the Arizona State Library Association. A subject index is included. (SD)
