Presentation Description

In order to plan effective literacy lessons and provide access to appropriate print and electronic sources, media specialists need to know exactly what types of sources students are using in their research papers. Through a teacher survey, student and teacher focus groups, and collection of historical budget data, one school district assessed teh exact use of the print collection of three high schools. The results of this research could serve as a model fo rother school districts in assessing student use of print and electronic resources in research papers.
