AuthorsMoreBased on many years of columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly, this book presents key terms in a working theoretical model that may be used in developing and understanding the power of information inquiry in instruction. Authors Daniel Callison and Leslie Preddy have provided the new definitive work on information inquiry and information literacy instruction. New columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly are included and new Key Words for Instruction are introduced. An entirely new section on Inquiry has also been added and the books section of resources and websites has been updated.This book is both a revision and an update to Key Words, Concepts and Methods for Information Age Instruction. The entirely new Key Words for Instruction have immediate value for staff development purposes as reproducibles, for building year-long study group programs in schools and libraries, or as weekly discussion handouts.In addition to the invaluable theoretical base, the authors include much practical instructional application for immediate use, thoughtfully blending theory with real-world education and library science. Their book provides readers with insights into the tremendous role of the school library media specialist as both a teacher and a librarian who needs to understand, interpret, and instruct students in the skill of inquiry--the basis of all learning. This is a basic purchase for all library and information literacy programs K-12 as well as for school library educators.
