The Cocalico High School librarian teaches information literacy skills to students through a completely integrated approach. Research projects at each grade level and in each subject area afford students the opportunity for introduction and reinforcement of research skills. Students are introduced to the best resources in each subject area, learn specific searching skills to make them efficient users of information, and then have time to practice and refine those skills as they complete tasks and projects for their classes. Skills that are covered include the use of the on-line public access catalog (OPAC), Internet searching and website evaluation, a research process that includes determining research needs, narrowing topics, locating and using appropriate resources, note-taking strategies, and documentation of resources. Ethical use of information is a key element emphasized through each assignment.
