Today's students need information literacy skills more than ever before. While essential skills did include reading, writing, and arithmetic, there is now an essential fourth "R—Research "Research" means "information literacy," and the best way to teach it is using the Big6 approach.
The Big6 was first developed in 1987 as a simple, flexible, and broadly applicable approach to teaching and learning essential information literacy skills. At its most fundamental level, the Big6 is a six-stage process model for information problem-solving and decision-making. For over 20 years, the successful Big6 formula has been constantly expanded and refined with the input of thousands of teachers and many more students—in both public and private education settings.
Today's latest incarnation of The Big6 Workshop Handbook includes the Super3 process; using the Big6 to teach technology skills; integration with subject area curricula, assessment, and standardized testing; connecting with national, state, and school district standards; and micro and macro-level planning. Everyone from classroom teachers and teacher-librarians to administrators and parents will find it invaluable.
