Workbook

Information Literacy at JEHS – Lesson 1 

Q. Why did the teacher need dark glasses?

A. Because her students were so bright. 

Q: Why are fish so smart?

A: Because they live in schools. 

We like jokes because they make our minds stretch to places we didn’t expect to go but when we get there it’s a pleasant surprise. That is the way we want you to think about the library. (Not as a joke but a place for pleasant surprises!)

This 3 year old child learns by experience. He can taste, smell and touch, as well as see and hear. We say he has “empirical knowledge”. However he is illiterate.

 

There are many locations for books in the library.

Non-Fiction books are full of facts about particular subjects.

Fiction books are centred on a narrative and while an author makes them up they must ring true or we lose interest in them.

There are other smaller locations for special books such as manga and picture books.

 

Throughout the year we will learn about how to get and use information. We call this information literacy. Each lesson we will explore a fairy tale narrative and reflect on the useful information it reveals. Then we will practice getting information from various sources by using the catalogue.

 

The best way to experience fairy stories is to hear them. If you didn’t hear Mr Davidson’s version then you can read the first story at Puss in Boots. The story has some really magical parts but it is also full of information.

Are you getting the idea about Information Literacy?
