21st Century Information Fluency: Teacher's Guide: Ethical Use GameKit | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

This guide provides instructions and ideas for using the Action Zone activities that are bundled in this Ethical Use Kit. The Sorting Hat Challenge requires searchers to dig for information within a site to find its author. Four new MicroModule Companions test skills in finding information about Copyright, Citation and Plagiarism (2 sets). In addition to serving as tutorial resources, each one may be used to assess the extent to which students are able to demonstrate skills in secondary searching and citing resources properly.

Reaching Those Resistant Readers | Fun, Fast-Paced Fiction | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

"The books listed here will ... feature clear narratives that quickly draw readers into the action and are supported by snappy dialogue that helps move the stories along. Add to that appealing protagonists, attractive covers, and layouts that feature generous print size and plenty of white space, and bingo, you have something to hand to the hard-to-please. A few series titles and sequels are included to keep them reading once they’re hooked."
