Media specialists, particularly in large urban high schools, often cannot meet the individual instructional needs of every student. This book outlines an online unit that helps media specialists ensure that every student receives valuable-and consistent-information literacy instruction. The book contains a ten-step orientation course created by author Pamela S. Bacon for her students. It includes reproducible worksheets, explicit instructions, modeling, and patterning necessary to create a similar online orientation program in any secondary school. In addition, the book provides a model and electronic templates on a Web companion site that will enable any school media specialist construct a customized online orientation. The Web component includes appendix materials, with instructional PowerPoint shows to use with staff and students.
