My purpose in teaching Library Skills to our St. Francis students is to guide them in becoming responsible media users, whether they use print or online resources. One of the ways I do this is by following the Information Literacy Standards developed nationally in 1998. Many of the standards dovetail with the teacher’s own standards. I especially enjoy collaborating with the classroom teachers to complete projects. For many of the ethical teachings I do, I always refer to our Catholic faith as a guide. Hopefully, after leaving St. Francis, they will be well on their way to becoming responsible lifelong learners.
