Lewis, Courtney L. – Knowledge Quest, 2019
One of the issues connected to the use of standards in independent schools is the varying approaches to an astonishing variety of school missions.

O'Connor, Mary Lou Caron – Knowledge Quest, 2019

Lofton, Jane – Knowledge Quest, 2018

Little, Hannah Byrd – Knowledge Quest, 2018
Students are looking more and more to social media for their daily news. They must learn how to verify this news and how to cite the information. From a very early age, they need to understand how to interact with networked, digital technologies. They need to learn how to use social media and learn how not to be used by it. It is important to…

Miller, Angie – Knowledge Quest, 2018
Librarianship is an ever-changing journey that follows the evolution of media literacy.

Dooly, Dustin L. – Knowledge Quest, 2017
We seem to instinctively crave information that confirms our biases. Rather than learning knowable things, we shrink inside ourselves and hunker down with the familiar, comfortable information that feeds our narrative of what we think we know, of how we think the world works. Students do not naturally know how to open up their perspective to other…

Fontichiaro, Kirstin; Oehrli, Jo Angela – Knowledge Quest, 2016
As many states move forward with adoption or adaptation of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards, Common Core State Standards, and/or Next Generation Science Standards, students are expected to be fluent with data: to collect and analyze it, create figures and tables, integrate quantitative…

Murphy, Nora G. – Knowledge Quest, 2016
Just as fluency isn't knowing every word in a language, source literacy isn't knowing every source. It is, instead, the ability to interpret from context, to know what to ask, to read the clues, and to use the understanding brought from knowing about other sources. A person fluent in source literacy is able to do this automatically, the way you…

Vaughan, Lauri J.; Smith, Sue; Cranston, Meredith – Knowledge Quest, 2016
Teachers become experts in their discipline and its writing conventions after years of study. However, they ask students who switch subjects five or six times a day to change disciplinary lenses every hour or so.

Messenger, Caroline Gordon – Knowledge Quest, 2015
More than twenty years ago reading researchers sought to capture the behaviors good readers demonstrated to make meaning from their reading.
