This workshop will give participants an overview of an introductory information literacy unit forming the basis of a four-year curriculum to embed information literacy in high school courses. Developed with a 9th English Teacher, the goal was to transform teacher and student perceptions of research from product-driven assignments to a set of critical thinking skills and strategies to be applied to tasks across disciplines. These skills for the basis for students to become indpendent learners, engaged citizens, and confident and ethical users/creators of information.  

The theoretical basis for this unit comes from  the Inquiry Search Process (ISP) model created by Carol Kuhlthau. Participants will have a chance to interact with the lessons and materials, discsuss challenges and modifications, and co-create visions of how information literacy may transform education.
