Information skills instruction is a fundamental and vital part of K-12 education in the 21st century. The Handy 5, a proven effective model for planning, teaching, and assessing information skills instruction, was written to help library media specialists and teachers to collaborate more effectively in the teaching of information skills. This second edition offers a clear explanation of the model and provides numerous examples of units that have been used successfully and are adaptable for use in your school. This five-step model provides a framework for planning learning activities to accommodate frequent and systematic evaluation for the benefit of all students' success. The 2nd edition of The Handy 5 has added specific content relating to use in the primary grades. Strategies, and master copies, for applying The Handy 5 in the classroom include a flip chart, bookmarks, and handbooks as well as many other suggestions. Content standards and teaching strategies are aligned with the 5 steps of the model. There is a new lesson plan section by content area and grade level for PreK-12 grades, and a CD with master copies of the various handbooks, bookmarks, posters, and other documents useful in the library and classroom has been included. Divided into three parts, part 1 explains exactly what the Handy 5 is; part 2 outlines the theoretical background and presents the research that validated the model; and part 3 provides useful examples of the model's implementation.
