The Plato Program: An Innovative Information Skills Curriculum
Stanton, John
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)
The Plato Program is an innovative and dynamic subject that was introduced to explore "learning how to learn" in Year 7. In response to observations by staff that students lacked critical thinking and research skills, it has metamorphosed into a vehicle for the delivery of information literacy within the curriculum, with a particular focus on electronic information sources. The course is structured using the well-known matrix combining Gardner's Multiple Intelligences with Bloom's Taxonomy, populated by tasks exploring information-based "Essential Questions". (Contains 1 table.)
