It is divided into two major parts: worksheets and tools, and graphic masters. Within each part, the materials are organized by section, and each section focuses on a particular task, area, or concept. Part I comprises worksheets and tools designed to assist in carrying out the information gathering, assessment, and design of activities outlined in the Six-Stage Strategy, which was presented in the companion to this book. The tools are divided into six logical, interrelated sections: (1) curriculum mapping; (2) curriculum support services; (3) curriculum planning; (4) instruction; (5) assessment; and (6) time management. Part ii is composed of a series of visuals developed to assist in presenting and promoting the agenda and strategy proposed in the earlier work, and is divided into four interrelated sections: (1) curriculum support services; (2) the Big Six Skills; (3) general management concepts and tools; and (4) the Six-Stage Strategy. The visuals are intended for use as masters for overhead transparencies and handouts to enhance presentations to all constituencies relevant to the library media program, I.E., teachers, administrators, students, library media professional and support staff, boards of education, school and district committees, and various community groups. An 11-item bibliography is provided. (Cgd)

Helping with Homework: A Parent's Guide to Information Problem-Solving. Eric Digest by Robert E Berkowitz( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Parents can play an important role in helping their children succeed in school. This eric Digest presents the Big Six Skills problem-solving method as an effective approach for parents. The Big Six Skills apply to any problem or activity that requires a solution or result based on information. The Big Six can help parents effectively deal with the abundance of information available from many sources to guide their children through school assignments. The Big Six consists of: task definition, information seeking strategies, location and access, use of information, synthesis, and evaluation. In this approach, the parent assumes the role of a "coach" while the child assumes the role of a "thinker and doer." The parent guides the student through all steps it takes to complete the assignment, while the child thinks about what he or she needs to do at each step and then finds appropriate ways to do it. The Big Six approach recognizes the benefits of technology such as computers, e-mail, and the Internet for organizing information and for access to non-traditional sources of information. The Big Six approach can help parents effectively guide their children through assignments and at the same time help their children become independent learners and users of information.
