Abstract:

Coloring, talking in chat rooms, describing a Coke bottle, do these activities seem like a long stretch from library instruction? While untraditional, these exercises and similar ones are included in lesson plans in this book. This collection is a librarian's book of good active learning exercises to help and empower students with learning the basic concepts of information literacy. In this publication we highlight activities that foster and encourage critical thinking. These lesson plans focus on teaching conceptual and transferable information literacy skills using activities that provide hands-on as well as minds-on experiences. This book is designed to serve as a repository of ideas for classes and assignments that instructors can use pretty much as is. Additional materials are provided on disk so that instructors can modify and print what they need to teach the class or to give as an assignment. Permission is given for individual librarians or classroom teachers to reproduce the activities for classroom use.
