Review quote

"Filled with lessons and activities that incorporate technology into classroom curricula, and in conjunction with the ISTE standards, this volume is a useful tool for library media specialists and classroom teachers alike. Each unit is organized by a grid of categories: Information Retrieval - print and Internet sites for information gathering; Student Productivity- what students will be creating; Problem Solving and Decision-Making; Communication and Collaboration; Teacher Delivery of lessons; and Classroom management. Each unit is then broken down into Objectives. The unit is outlined with the intended audience and the length of the unit. Student and teacher activities are aligned with the ISTE standards. Going beyond the typical research assignments and written reports, the final products are creative and varied. For example, in one activity on the Presidents, students are asked to write letters as a former president to either their wife or predecessor with four points that they need to include. Lessons and units are well laid out and easy to understand and implement with web sites and resources provided. Examples of worksheets are given throughout the book in a reduced format. This volume showcases how teachers and media specialists can collaborate from beginning to end of a project, from developing handouts to grading, where the team approach is the focus. Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
