Review quote

"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 Connection
