Cultivating Curiosity: Information Literacy Skills and the Primary School Library

Geoff Dubber·January 2008

ISBN 9781903446423 · Price: £7.50 (Members £6.00)Add to Basket

Series: SLA Guidelines · Level: Primary

Cultivating curiosity in children in primary schools is one of the most important things that we can do for them. Developing an enthusiasm for learning is at the very heart of human development and a central reason for teaching information literacy, and is a crucial focus for school library work. This updated and revised Guideline, taking account of the 2007 Government literacy teaching objectives, explains the importance of embedding information literacy into a whole school, ICT and curriculum context. It outlines and explains the processes of research for young children and shows ways that teachers and librarians can develop and promote information literacy and related ICT skills through the primary school library and link it to classroom practice. It also includes a very useful and practical case study, some templates and a reading list.
