Jones, Rebecca
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
Two information literacy skills pilot projects are being undertaken at Malvern St James School (MSJ) with Year 6 and Year 9 pupils during 2009-10. The projects encourage the development of independent learning skills, with pupils planning, managing and executing both the research and practical elements of their project. Each pupil sets their own aims and objectives and it is the process skills as well as the project that is assessed. The projects examine pupil motivation levels, if pupils can use research to inform their practical project and how pupils respond to opportunities to undertake self-directed learning. Appendices include: (1) Student independent learning challenge projects; and (2) Year 9 independent learning challenge timetable. (Contains 1 table.)
