Regardless of what educators maintain, the general public believes test scores accurately reflect student performance and school success. This situation places enormous pressure on schools to improve, but it also offers opportunities for library media specialists to help students learn valuable information literacy skills that in turn will improve test scores. By joining forces with educators, media specialists can demonstrate how information literacy skills strengthen student performance as well as instruct teachers on teaching and testing information skills within the context of classroom content. Teaching and Testing Information Literacy Skills will help library media specialists educate teachers on information literacy skills and increase collaboration for effective test-taking preparation.show more

Review quote

"Educators are well aware of the nationally imposed pressure to raise student test scores an all areas of the curriculum. No matter the subject area, one necessary educational skill remains constant--information literacy. This work combines numerous studies, research papers, and professional positions to empower the school librarian. Living in the "information age," the library's role is instrumental in academic success by students, as indicated by numerous studies. This title uses the results of research such as the Colorado Study and Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning, to justify the librarian's leadership role in teaching and evaluating information literacy skills. This volume reads like a textbook on how to teach as well as like a public relations piece on the importance of library media programs. The very thorough contents pages will guide the user to the sections that are of importance to the task at hand. Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
