Let’s be honest, learning about call numbers and how to find something in the library is not always exciting. Students are usually not as interested in learning how to navigate the library and use an online catalog (or OPAC) as librarians are, so I put this unit together.
It is designed for librarians or library media specialists, though others may find it useful to teach about the public or school library alike.
This unit contains EDITABLE and customizable components, including:
-Lesson plans aligned to the National and PA Common Core and AASL Information Literacy Standards (Microsoft Word document)
-Teacher's notes to help you set up and get organized
-Library Explorer's Passport printable in 2 versions, with or without Dewey numbers (Editable Microsoft Publisher file format and easy-to-print PDF file)
-Editable library map and quiz (Microsoft Word document)
-Promethean ActivBoard (TM) flipchart and Microsoft PowerPoint presentation including interactive learner response "quizzes" to check for understanding
-Printable call number labels to make your own flashcards for students to use when finding books in your local library (Microsoft Word .docx file)
-A list of other supplies needed – PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW
