Review quote

"Making learning fun is the theme the author gives this book. Written especially for the elementary to middle school media specialist, the author gives him or her the tools to build literacy and analyze student achievement. Organized into 75 fun ideas for learning, fundraising tips and helpful hints for library promotion the book involves the entire school in developing literacy skills. There are helpful hints about beginning conversations with classrooms teachers without getting a mere yes or no... Using this book the school media specialist will be armed with ideas to increase literacy skills and help the teachers promote learning and achievement." - Colorado Association of Libraries "This book is chock full of ideas for incorporating information literacy into language arts, science, math, music, visual arts, social studies, technology, and library instruction. The majority of the lessons list national standards covered, provide thorough details for teaching, and give a supply and equipment list. Where appropriate, basic assessment rubrics are also supplied. Some lessons can be adapted for students in grades K-8, while others have a more narrow focus. Suggested book lists and Web sites are provided for some lessons. Collaboration with the classroom teacher is encouraged, and a planning form is included. If you are looking for fresh ideas to incorporate information literacy into your classrooms, this title would be a good choice." - Library Media Connectionshow more
