Literacy
When students are information literate they are able to recognize when information is needed and they have the ability to locate, evaluate, and effectively use the needed information.
An information literate individual is able to:

Determine the extent of information needed

Access the needed information effectively and efficiently

Evaluate information and its sources critically

Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base

Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose

Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information, and access and use information ethically and legally
These skills are needed throughout life because..
We are always seeking information.
What car should I buy?
Which college should I choose?
Which book should I read next?
How can I prepare for my interview?
How can I sell this idea to my boss?

Emotions associated
with research
Apprehension
Anxiety
Confusion
Anxiety
Elation
Doubt
Confusion
Uncertainty
Task Initiation
Topic Selection
Prefocus Exploration
Focus Formulation
Optimism
Confidence in information
Information Collection
Realization of extensive work
Confidence in ability
Increased interest
Search Closure
Sense of relief
Satisfaction
Disappointment
How can
we use this?
By being aware of our
students' emotional state
as they do research for
projects
By letting our students know
that their anxieties are common
and not a sign of inadequacy
By not getting discouraged
when we sense that our students
are frustrated with an assignment
Any questions?
