Review quote

"A comprehensive collection of their favorite parts of the Big6 (TM) eNewsletter, Eisenberg and Robinson have compiled this second volume to support information problem solving using the Big6 skills. This resource serves as a functional starting point for the Big6 newbie as much as it offers new applications of the Big6 skills to Big6 enthusiasts with this compilation of previously published articles-perhaps missed the first time around-by Big6 practitioners. Part 1 of this anthology restates and redefines the original Big6 skills. Other components address Big6 in action, divided into activities and suggestions for grade-specific activities for K-Higher Education, activities for use in the Arts, and activities for use with exceptional students. This volume addresses how to use Big6 with technology, how to teach information problem solving, and how to companion the skills with content standards. Clearly, I believe this volume is a beneficial tool for supporting information literacy growth in schools; and current explanations of Big6 skills and applications are less cryptic to educators than the original documents. Purchase this reasonably priced book if you have no Big6 books for professional use in your school or if you are an avid Big6 collector. Previous Big6 publications in your collection continue to suffice as generous resources. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
