Jen Baker's insight:

Great article from a college librarian on what students should know coming out of high school. One thing she considers important that I've been missing is having students FIND information based on a citation.  Excellent point which I shall include next school year.

The Candid Librarian: Lovin' Copyright

Jen Baker's insight:

Excellent article from middle school librarian Jenifer Northrup on teaching copyright to students AND teachers.  She brings up some important points, like - are we modeling citation or just expecting it at research paper time?  She also suggest having students license their own work through Creative Commons to help them understand the importance of citation.

Jen Baker's insight:

(I've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate wikipedia & wiki editing into a lesson.  Is this it?)
