The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic]

The Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet [Infographic] | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking skills truly matter in learning. Why? Because they are life skills we use every day of our lives. Everything from our work to our recreational pursuits, and all that’s in between, employs these unique and valuable abilities. Consciously developing them takes thought-provoking discussion and equally thought-provoking questions to get it going. Begin right here with the Critical Thinking Skills Cheatsheet.


It’s a simple infographic offering questions that work to develop critical thinking on any given topic. Whenever your students discover or talk about new information, encourage them to use these questions for sparking debate and the sharing of opinions and insights among each other. Together they can work at building critical thinking skills in a collaborative and supportive atmosphere."

Samantha's curator insight, June 1, 9:50 AM
Critical thinking is an essential skill, and the journalistic question are always a great way (and subject) on which to practice critical thinking. I really appreciate how detailed this outline is. I would love to make a poster of it. It is exactly the sort of thing I would love to have up in the classroom, as a guide for me as well as my students.

Selling Nonfiction with Student-Created Ads

Selling Nonfiction with Student-Created Ads | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Last week, a teacher asked me to help her students explore “our amazing nonfiction collection.” (Her words, really!) Students have always been reluctant browsers in our nonfiction section, even though we put our most enticing titles on display. With our construction project this year, it’s been even worse, as we weeded and condensed nonfiction from five to three rows and the new signage isn’t up yet. I thought about revising our speed dating lesson with all nonfiction categories. Then at lunch another teacher asked me to address persuasive techniques with her class. I recently found the Break Your Own News website and used that to introduce a website evaluation lesson. First flash of brilliance--I realized we could use the site to create book talkers for our nonfiction books! I quickly created a presentation about persuasive techniques in advertising, with videos for each technique.

What are literacy skills? | #InformationLiteracy #MediaLiteracy #ModernEDU #ICT | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Literacy skills help students gain knowledge through reading as well as using media and technology. These skills also help students create knowledge through writing as well as developing media and technology.

Information Literacy

Students need to be able to work effectively with information, using it at all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating). Information literacy involves traditional skills such as reading, researching, and writing; but new ways to read and write have also introduced new skills:

Consuming information: The current excess of information requires students to gain new skills in handling it. When most information came through official publications like books, newspapers, magazines, and television shows, students encountered data that had been prepared by professionals. Now, much information is prepared by amateurs. Some of that work is reliable, but much is not. Students must take on the role of the editor, checking and cross-checking information, watching for signs of bias, datedness, and errors. Students need to look at all information as the product of a communication situation, with a sender, subject, purpose, medium, receiver, and context.Producing information: In the past, students were mostly consumers of information. When they produced information, it was largely for a single reader—the teacher—and was produced for a grade. It was therefore not an authentic communication situation, and students felt that writing was a purely academic activity. Now writing is one of the main ways students communicate. It has real-world applications and consequences. Students need to understand that what they write can do great good or great harm in the real world, and that how they write determines how powerful their words are. Students need to take on the role of professional writers, learning to be effective and ethical producers of information.Media Literacy

Media literacy involves understanding the many ways that information is produced and distributed. The forms of media have exploded in the last decade and new media arrive every day:

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, May 4, 3:34 PM
I love the simple, yet informative, graphic that opens this article for teachers about the 4 phases of Inquiry-Based Learning. We talk a lot about inquiry and how important it is to engage students through questioning but how much attention is given to the teaching professional to make sure s/he knows how to implement a quality program? This is a wonderful article to share with teachers and it's great for librarians, too. Think about how we use these 4 phases every time a patron comes in looking for a book suggestion. You interact to get a feel for who they are, you get clarification about what they're looking for, you engage in the "reference interview" to narrow down  your suggestions, and then you provide a list of suggestions or "design" the reading experience. We've been modeling this for years! Enjoy!
