1 Project Preview Kelli Eten I created this informational project with middle school teachers in mind. I created this informational project with middle school teachers in mind. I intend for the audience to read the majority of slides on their own. I have found that as adults, teachers, can be worse than kids. In most cases, there is a greater chance of the faculty paying attention if they are responsible for actually reading and not just required to listen. I intend for the audience to read the majority of slides on their own. I have found that as adults, teachers, can be worse than kids. In most cases, there is a greater chance of the faculty paying attention if they are responsible for actually reading and not just required to listen. Also, the noise makers, a strategy I use in class to keep the kids active and awake. Adults also like to get involved. The presentation may seem a bit silly while you look at it on your own, but imagine the group of faculty whistling or clapping in the back of your mind. The actions bring the group together as one and gets some of the less attentive teachers to pay attention. Also, the noise makers, a strategy I use in class to keep the kids active and awake.

4 That is not all….you are also thinking I can read the slides faster than she can READ them to me, which all presenters seem to do… I can read the slides faster than she can READ them to me, which all presenters seem to do… Tap your pen/pencil if you think so too….

5 Information Literacy A set of competencies that an informed citizen of an information society ought to possess to participate intelligently and actively in that society.

11 Give me an F! Stomp your feet if you can recall what F stands for Stomp your feet if you can recall what F stands for FOCUS: the first strategy of FINDS.

12 Keys to keep focus Students use these key questions to guide the beginnings of the research process. What is my assignment or the information problem to be solved? What is my assignment or the information problem to be solved? What are my questions and/or thesis sentence? What are my questions and/or thesis sentence? What types of information will be needed?

13 Overwhelmed? A majority of students (of all ages, including adults) feel overwhelmed when given a project or assignment that requires research or any creative application.

14 Solution: Collaboration and Planning Information literacy IS NOT an isolated subject… Information literacy skills are part of our curriculum. Include the research model, FINDS, in your lesson plans to provide the guidance students need to research effectively. Information literacy skills are part of our curriculum.

15 FINDS inside Information Literacy ALL parts of the FINDS research model can be found within the Information Literacy standards that are embedded in our curriculum and Sunshine State Standards. The strategy FOCUS refers to standard one and performance indicators. Each standard has a basic, proficient and exemplary level of proficiency.

16 More on Information Literacy STANDARD 1 The student who is information literate accesses information efficiently and effectively. Indicators # 1 Recognizes the need for information. #2 Recognizes that accurate and comprehensive information is the basis for intelligent decision making. #3 Formulates questions based on information needs. #4 Identifies a variety of potential sources of information. #5 Develops and uses successful strategies for locating information. taken from Information Power Building Partnerships for Learning taken from Information Power Building Partnerships for Learning

17 Why implement FINDS? Using the steps of the FINDS model will guide your students on a path of information literacy, the ability to find and use information.

Through its use and practice, students will move from a basic level of proficiency, to proficient, and then an exemplary level.
