Reviews/Endorsements

Reviews

"This book provides important resources for secondary school librarians who need it and fills a gap in the field."Library Media Connection

"[I]f you want a guide for teaching the research paper, then this one is worth examining because of its short, pithy teaching segments that can be prepared for almost-instant delivery. At the moment, there are efforts by the American Association of School Librarians and the Association of College and Research Libraries to cross the gap between high school senior and first-year college student. This guide helps build that bridge."Teacher Librarian

"For high school teachers and librarians, this resource book contains lessons, checklists, and assessments based on the standards from Information Power's Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning and the Association for College and Research Libraries' (ACRL), Information Literacy Standards for Higher Education. After discussing each standard, lessons (which are tailored to match specific ACRL standards) are presented, followed by checklists and assessments for students and instructors. A chapter on integrating information literacy skills into the curriculum rounds out the book."Reference & Research Book News
