Transcript of The Big6
What kind of problems
are we talking about?
Buying a birthday present
Doing a research project
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?
What is the Big6?
which basically means
a "problem solving process"
Teaching students the
steps needed to effectively
find and discern information
will make these steps intuitive
for them as they move through
their education and their lives.
Why the Big6?
(print and online)
New (common) terminology
Not a stand
existing lesson plans
Does the Big6
cover it all?
A Step Beyond
"Model of the
Information Search Process"

Confidence in information
Realization of extensive work
Confidence in ability
Sense of relief
we use this?
By being aware of our
students' emotional state
as they do research for
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
