Review quote

"What first began as an article in Library Talk has become a professional tool that school librarians of all grade levels can use. The author has taken a year-long information literacy game that she planned for her school and expanded it greatly. The first two sections of the book, Perspective and Philosophy, provide a well-researched and well-written explanation of information literacy and all of the various aspects that must be considered. This summary of the current research and history of information literacy will help many librarians who haven't kept up. ... Though this was originally planned for use in an elementary school, it is appropriate in a middle school. High school librarians with a little creative thinking can devise ways to use it, too. I'm thinking that my student library helpers will be participating in InfoQuest next year! One of my favorite details of this book is the plethora of quotations in sidebars throughout the first two sections-you know, the ones you love to put into presentations. Highly recommended." - The Book Reportshow more
