Classroom teachers, teacher librarians, and technology teachers need a complete ICT program—one with clearly defined goals and objectives, planned and coordinated instruction, regular and objective assessment of learning, and formal reporting of results. This book explains how to integrate the objectives of ICT literacy into your school’s established curricular structure.

The book explains the rationale for having a comprehensive ICT program, describes how to develop a Big6 by the Month program, and defines the challenges in the areas of information-seeking strategies, location and access, use of information, synthesis, and evaluation. It also includes templates for grade level objectives; a scenario plan, program plan, lesson plan, and unit plan; summary evidence and criteria; performance descriptors; a presentation readiness checklist; and Big6 by the Month checklists for instructional leaders, teachers, and teacher librarians.
