Finding Details, Main Ideas, & Good Sources: How Information Literate Are NZ Students?
Brown, Gavin; Dunn, Karyn
Designed to be used with the New Zealand curriculum framework, this slide presentation defines "information literacy," gives an information literacy overview, proposes 10 questions that students need to ask themselves, and provides student educational objectives for information skills. The report presents an essential skills assessment formula for primary (years 5 and 6), intermediate (years 7 and 8), and secondary (years 9 and 10) grade. It offers examples of definitions and discusses persuasive language and positive, negative, and neutral writing for intermediate and secondary grades, as well as ambiguity for secondary grades. It then focuses on evaluating information in text and finding information in prose text for intermediate and secondary levels. Contains 13 references. (NKA)
