Information Skills Toolkit: Collaborative Integrated Instruction for the Middle Grades. Professional Growth Series.
Logan, Debra Kay
This toolkit provides tested lessons and a selection of alternative ideas for the middle grades to help adapt and integrate the teaching of information skills in a way that meets the needs of teachers and students. After an introductory section, eight chapters of Collaborative Integrated Skills Lessons are provided. The lessons are grouped by broad curricular areas and themes, including basic skill lessons, social studies/history, science, health, math, language arts, home economics/personal and family planning, and the arts. Within these subject groups, the lessons have a consistent format for easy use that includes: title, collaborator(s), overview, time, curriculum connections, suggested level and audience, information skill standards, prerequisite skills or background, materials, instruction and activities, assessment, adaptations and extensions, teaching or technology tips, and note-taking or pathfinder sheet. A chapter on assessment provides an array of self and teacher assessment tools that address assessment of both product and process. Appendices cover: resource, project, teacher contact/public relations, bibliography, and software company list. Includes an index. (AEF)
