Training for Media Specialists in October

Two October Events will be of special interest to Media Specialists:

Take a Bite Out of Reading, Writing and Research with the APPLE Research Method

"Information Literacy” is one of those terms you hear about all the time, but what exactly does it mean? How can you work information literacy training into your library media curriculum? The new Florida Sunshine State Standards will include an information literacy component for every grade level in Language Arts, so these questions are going to be increasingly important.
The APPLE Research model was developed in Clay County to help school library media specialists, classroom teachers, and administrators integrate information literacy instruction into any subject area, on any grade level. The object of this training is for teachers and library media specialists to work smarter, not harder in helping students learn to manage the vast overload of information everyone is bombarded with every day. This research model is easy-to-use and incorporates information literacy into every aspect of life, not just school!
