MEDIA REVIEWS

The authors point out that their model for problem solving is not unique, but that its application to the world of information and technology gives it relevance. . . . Sample lessons demonstrate how to integrate the Big6 into the curriculum and to teach students how to select appropriate resources, discriminate between needed and superfluous information, and evaluate their progress and success. The book promotes the use of indexes while doing research and, accordingly, contains an extensive index. Cooperation and coordination among classroom teachers, media specialists, technology teachers, and others involved in the teaching process are advised. The practical suggestions, student handouts, and evaluation tools make this a worthwhile volume. - School Library Journal
