Leaders in the field of information literacy, Esther S. Grassian and Joan R. Kaplowitz have revised, expanded, and updated their comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of library instruction. This second edition covers all aspects and modes of information literacy instruction, including history and psychology, as well as how to create and design teaching materials, how to use new technology to support pedagogy, and how to utilize new developments in the field since the publication of the previous edition.
"...Grassian and Kaplowitz have once again published a solid, thorough manual that will serve many groups of information literacy practitioners...the new edition of Information Literacy Instruction will be a welcome addition to the professional reading shelf of any practicing instruction librarian. As was one of its intents, it will also serve as a great textbook for library school graduate students studying information literacy instruction."
The recommended readings and exercises at the end of each chapter help put ideas and concepts into practice. The companion CD-ROM includes institutional and library mission statements related to information literacy, a table listing pros and cons of assessment tools, a brief overview of learning styles table, examples of minimalist documentation, a sample PowerPoint slide show, a sample class outline, a two-minute yoga exercise, suggestions for further reading and the complete book bibliography, both with live links to web pages.
