Preservice Teachers' Knowledge of Information Literacy and Their Perceptions of the School Library Program
Lee, Elizabeth A.; Reed, Brenda; Laverty, Corinne
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v31 n1 p3-22 2012
Graduating preservice teachers were surveyed regarding their knowledge of information literacy concepts, the pedagogy of information literacy, and the role of the teacher librarian and school library programs. The preservice teachers felt poorly prepared to teach information literacy to pupils, had a limited array of information skills, and held a narrow view of the role of the school library. In response to these findings, the education librarians revised their instruction to the preservice teachers by moving the focus from information literacy skills for teachers to strategies for teaching information literacy skills to K-12 students. (Contains 6 figures and 2 tables.)
