Based on many years of columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly, authors, Daniel Callison and Leslie Preddy present key terms in a working theoretical model that may be used in developing and understanding the power of information inquiry in instruction. This book is both a revision and an update to Key Words, Concepts and Methods for Information Age Instruction (LMS Associates, 2003). New columns from School Library Media Activities Monthly are included and entirely new Key Words for Instruction are introduced. These key terms have immediate value for staff development purposes. They are reproducible and would be useful in building year-long study group programs in schools and libraries or as weekly discussion handouts. An entirely new section on Inquiry has been added. An in-depth and invaluable section of resources and web sites has been updated. In addition to the theoretical base, the authors include much practical instructional application for immediate use. Like, one stop shopping, The Blue Book on Information Age Inquiry, Instruction and Literacy is the new definitive work on information inquiry and information literacy instruction. The authors have thoughtfully blended theories in education and library science in a book that finally gives us a picture of the huge role of the school library media specialist as both a teacher and a librarian who needs to understand, interpret and instruct students in the skill of inquiry, the basis of all learning. This is a basic purchase for all library and information literacy programs K-12 and for school library educators. This is the "Blue Book" on library and information literacy instruction--a must have.

Editorial Reviews

"A revision and update of Key Words, Concepts and Methods for Information Age Instruction (2003), this text boasts a new section on inquiry, new key words for instruction, and updated lists of print and Internet sources. Part 1 introduces the concepts of information inquiry, providing foundational documents and exploring search and use models, information literacy, standards, the instructional role of library media specialists, online inquiry learning, and resource management. Part 2 offers concrete examples of inquiry applied to the middle school student research process, and supplies reproducible pages for classroom use. Part 3 discusses and defines 51 key terms. Entries here are several pages in length and include citations and references. Indispensable for all school media specialists, this book will also appeal to other readers, who will be impressed by its well-organized design, thoroughness, and practicality."-Booklist/Professional Reading
