Review quote

"The book includes a helpful CD with files that include handy bookmarks that explain the BIG6 model, planning guides for both students and teachers, rubrics, and other useful forms. If you teach information skills, this may be the model you have been looking for to provide structure and consistency to your curriculum." - Catholic Library World "...provides a fine resource for followers of the Big6, offering a new resource including state and national standards, evaluation guides, and lessons for using puppets to teach young students. Any education library including other Big6 titles for working with young learners will find this a key, essential acquisition." - Midwest Book Review "This book is a valuable resource for librarians and classroom teachers seeking strategies for improvement of research skills in primary classrooms and should be seriously considered for purchase. Recommended." - Library Media Connection "For educators, Jansen . . . a Big6 trainer who also works in instructional technology, details how to teach information and communications technology skills in K-3 classrooms using the Big6 problem-solving method. Each chapter addresses a component of the process and describes its use and modifications by teachers and library media specialists working with
early learners. Initial chapters discuss the rationale for using it, the developmental levels of children in kindergarten through third grade, assessing progress, and collaboration. The final section presents the method in the context of content area curricula, literature appreciation, and the components of the school library. Example lesson plans show
how to incorporate state standards and combine skills and content from different subjects. The CD contains worksheets, charts, posters, and other documents from the book." - Reference & Research Book News
