Course Description

Educators will gain tools for boosting student understanding of information evaluation and use. Students with information literacy skills are prepared to think critically in an information rich society that can be overwhelming and misleading. An “information literate” individual knows when information is needed, how to find, interpret, and ethically use it. In this workshop, teachers and administrators examine information literacy standards and prepare to embed information literacy into core subject areas to benefit student understanding and engagement. The instructor will supply sample lessons in the sciences and humanities to discuss, as well as strategies for cross-discipline collaboration. As a result, participants will be better prepared to encourage students’ information literacy skills and to collaborate professionally. This workshop is designed for school administrators, principals, curriculum coordinators; high school and middle school social studies teachers, English teachers, and science teachers.
