Information Literacy Lesson 3

Part 1 

Consider the space in between reading and understanding. 

She had a boyfriend with a wooden leg, but broke it off. 

When a clock is hungry, it goes back four seconds. 

A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat. 

When you’ve seen one shopping centre, you’ve seen a mall. 

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. 

Part 2  

Information Skills Process  

 Producing a research assignment is like baking a cake. You must be thorough in preparing the ingredients and follow the steps in the recipe carefully. Here are the six steps recommended for creating the best assignments.   

1)       Define the key words/subjects

2)       Locate rich resources

3)       Select information that suits the questions

4)       Organise the results by themes, such as time, place or personality

5)       Present the results in a variety of ways

6)       Assess and evaluate the results of your search

Part 3 

Information Literacy and self empowerment.  

We are not always lucky in life but with good information literacy skills we can be prepared for new opportunities that may come our way. Rumpelstilskin is an excellent example of how a girl uses a combination of good fortune and information skills to solve the problems she was facing.    

Using the central narrative answer the following questions. 

1)       Why do people boast of things that cannot be done?

2)       What is straw?

3)       Why is gold so precious?

4)       What is more valuable than all the treasures in the world?

5)       Why are names so important? 

Part 4    Bibliographic records not only give information through metadata they are an exercise in visual literacy. Look at the record below.

  15. Personally, I feel a little hard done by in the story. My talent is an unusually one, and many people continue to scour the internet to find the secret of spinning straw into gold. Several times I helped that poor girl escape the stupidity of her father and the greed of the king for very modest reward. I did not need her necklace or her ring, I can spin straw into gold. I have had countless royal proposals from those who only want me for what I can do. I use my talent sparingly to help people in need. I returned to give the child a decent chance at life. Think of him growing up with a mother who cannot keep her word, a father who thinks only of gold and who was prepared to kill for it, and an fool for a grandfather. (Paris Hilton, Idi Amin and Demir Dokich). Even then I relented, and gave her a simple task to perform. It took three days for her to find what the youngest child knows: if you are asked to guess a tricky name it will be Rumpelstilskin. Everybody knows this, it is not a secret. Of course, I had to act upset, and chuck a wobbley so she would feel good about wriggling out of her commitments. She probably deserves being in a marriage of convenience. I wonder how long she will last if hubby ever asks her to spin straw into gold again. There will probably be some softie who will help her out. Just goes to show: the talented, generous and hard workers will always be exploited by the greedy and stupid, but will not be the poorer for it.
