The included activities for over 20 instructional sessions support a variety of learning styles. All have been tested successfully with both secondary school and undergraduate college students, including ESL students. Exercises focus on the library catalog, search engines, databases, search strings, Boolean and advanced searching, and types of information. The organization is flexible allowing you to use the lessons in any order or any grouping that meets the needs of your students and situation. A particularly useful feature for instructors provides the expected or desired answer to discussion questions and exercises within square brackets. The package includes a CD-ROM with all of the activity materials and handouts included in Microsoft Word format for easy customization."--BOOK JACKET."
