Review quote

"This guide for teachers and library media specialists describes how to use the Big6 problem solving process in teaching information literacy skills in elementary classrooms. It covers how to make sure students know what they are learning and why they are leaning it; the relationship between Big6 problem solving and information available from research; strategies for teaching each Big6 step (task definition, information seeking strategies, location and access, use of information, synthesis, and evaluation); and activities for integrating the process into existing classroom activities and content in math, science, and social studies. Lesson plans are included. Needham, a certified Big6 trainer, is an educator who has experience as a high school business education teacher and elementary librarian." - Reference & Research Book News
