Are special educators prepared to teach information literacy standard?
G-CASE Fall Conference 2014Susan Brown, Ph.D.sbrown1@Kennesaw.edu
The overarching goal of k-20 education is simple – to produce independent, self sufficient lifelong learners who can successfully navigate the competitive challenges of post secondary educational and/or workplace opportunities (NFIL, 2014).
Information Literacy is the set of skills needed to find, retrieve, analyze, and use information (ACRL, 2014).
Writers have four means by which they can incorporate source content into their text: they can quote, summarize, paraphrase, or patchwrite that content. Contemporary educational and media discourse has been focused on whether writers acknowledge their sources when they incorporate material from them. A more profound question is how writers incorporate source material; quotation, summary, paraphrase, and patchwriting are separate discursive moves representing different levels of intellectual engagement with the source (The Citation Project, 2014).
