  • Description

Information. Motivation. Purpose. Audience. Content. Technique. These are the key components to the IM-PACT model of teaching information literacy skills. Today’s librarians and educators must teach students how to understand, evaluate and integrate information in multiple, computer delivered formats in order for them to succeed in the 21st century.

Ruth Small, a leader in information literacy instruction and motivation, shows you how to develop a teaching style that keep students motivated, excited, and ready to embrace the new world of information. Learn the importance of needs assessments, collaborative planning, developing goals and objectives, audience analysis, cognitive styles, learning styles, attitudes, motivational styles, information literacy models, presentation methods, learning materials, teaching techniques, and more. The author’s tips and lessons are supported by case studies, visual models, and thought questions. The practical format of this text lets librarians and other instructors fill in tables and charts, complete surveys to assess their understanding and improvement, and complete exercises and activities. Here are all the necessary tools and tips you need to master the IM-PACT method and implement it effectively in school libraries and media centers.
