Summary and Info
This book of lesson plans using common picture books to teach the AASL/AECT Information Literacy Standards is targeted for grades K-3, complete with reproducible patterns and immediately usable reproducible activities providing lessons for each grade level (K-3) for each month of the school year. Each lesson will teach information literacy skill based on the AASL/AECT Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning. The skills are taught in a logical progression throughout the school year. Included is a reading resource bibliography for each month giving the Library Media Specialist or teacher additional picture books to teach specific skills with other lessons they choose to create. Each lesson has been tested by the authors and revised using primary grade classes from three elementary schools as the test subjects. Books selected for this project are nationally recognized and award winning picture books commonly found in most elementary library collections. Though the book is specifically targeted for use by Library Media Specialists, literacy coaches, reading teachers and classroom teachers in the primary grades will be interested in its content. Grades K-3.
