Abstract

There are several research models that teachers and media specialists can select to tach information literacy skills to their students. This presentation will focus on two research models, Big 6/Super 3 and the Kuhlthau model. The pros and cons of selecting these two models will be discussed. Frequently, teachers and media specialists just teach research without looking at tried and true models. Why is it crucial that a school adopt a model and do all their information literacy instruction using the same model? These questions and others will be the addressed in the session. Emphasis will be on the school as a whole using the same research model.
