Abstract:

"Teachers often assume students know how to do research. However, most students lack important information literacy skills and often need guidance in order to be successful researchers. Sometimes the research projects students are assigned are not well devised or planned, and teachers often underestimate the amount of time or effort necessary to complete a project. These difficulties soon become compounded because students often have poor organizational and time management skills, which are essential for good research. The desire to make the research experience pleasant and worthwhile for students and the teacher who must assess student efforts has led Chris Carlson and Ellen Brosnahan to devise a logical system, not only to help students gain valuable information literacy and time management skills, but also to help the instructors manage students during the process." "Guiding Students into Information Literacy: Strategies for Teachers and Teacher-Librarians takes readers systematically through the management of a research activity, from conception to final product. Each chapter includes handouts that have been used by the authors with actual research assignments, websites for further information, and a bibliography of additional sources. Also included is an appendix with examples of research papers."--Jacket.
