An effective library information skills program is an integral part of the total educational program, teaching students the basic processing skills necessary to connect them with information, and ideas in all subjects and interest areas. Development of these skills involves the collaborative efforts of media specialists, classroom teachers, computer teachers, administrators, parents, and students in the educational process, thus reinforcing the value of literacy.
It is the goal of the Howell Township Media Centers that each student will be empowered with the ability to efficiently and competently:
- Define the need for information;
- Initiate the search strategy;
- Locate resources;
- Assess and comprehend the information;
- Interpret information;
- Communicate the information; and
- Evaluate the process and product.
Our Media Centers serve as a link to literacy for our students in developing a life-long love of learning, reading, and books. Reading together and/or talking about the books your child has brought home from the Media Center can help develop an appreciation for literature.
Reading Rockets provides useful reading strategies for parents to help their children become successful readers. Take time to visit www.pbs.org/launchingreaders/parenttips.html where you will find tips to launch your child’s love for reading.
