Research Skills for Students DVD Series
Teach students how to navigate our complex, information-rich world!
Throughout their lives, successful people use information to make decisions, solve problems and communicate more effectively. Based on information literacy standards, this series helps students learn to navigate our complex, information-rich world through the development of critical research skills and the ability to access, evaluate and use information. This engaging and informational series was developed with Joyce Kasman Valenza, a practicing librarian and authority on issues relating to research and information literacy. It includes skills such as how to focus and refine a research question, how to access information on the invisible Web, how to synthesize information throughout the research process and how to communicate new knowledge most effectively. Each program encourages students to be critically aware of their sources, processes and products as they solve genuine research and information problems.
