YEAR 7 INFORMATION LITERACY HOMEWORK – TERM 2, WEEK 1

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?

 

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
