Every librarian and teacher of middle school and high school students should be clutching this volume to their hearts and using it with delight and thanks....I further think this is a work which would benefit college teachers and even graduate professors.
Unlike other library-skills curriculum books...this book concentrates on the critical thinking, problem solving, and constructive processes of learning that students go through. The worksheets develop the cognitive and metacognitive strategies students need to complete the library research process successfully....highly recommended.
...easy to use...the best book of its kind currently available...
