Planning for Instruction
Planning for Information Literacy (IL) instruction begins with developing instructional goals, objectives, and expected learning outcomes (ELOs). Identify a topic of your choice that would be appropriate to a school media center and that would support student acquisition of informational literacy skills.
In a three- to four-page paper (plus title and reference pages), include the following:
- Identify one clearly stated IL instructional goal and describe the intent of your instruction.
- Create at least two accompanying objectives for your goal. Your objectives should describe student behaviors to be learned that would demonstrate attainment of your chosen goal. In other words, what will your learners be able to do as a result of participating in your instruction?
- Describe the ELOs (in observable, measurable terms) for each of the written objectives. Make sure that you have described the performance, conditions, and criteria of success for each one. What will the learners do to convince you that they have attained each objective and thus have achieved the instructional goal? Utilize your text and at least one additional scholarly source. Remember to use proper APA format and cite your sources appropriately.
