Lower School Information Literacy

Lower School Information Literacy

Our Information Literacy program utilizes a curriculum to teach essential skills for locating, evaluating, and using information developed by media specialists and technology teachers. In an information-saturated environment, the emphasis shifts from simply finding facts to understanding why the quality of information matters. Through collaboration with classroom teachers on projects and assignments that include a research component, students gain skills that create a strong basis for future success in school and beyond.

In the Primary grades, students work on group research projects to help prepare them for individual work in grades three through six. They learn a sequence of essential skills for finding information in a variety of print and online sources and evaluating its usefulness in answering their questions. Then strategies for taking notes, organizing ideas, and producing projects in both written and visual formats help the student to integrate ideas of others into their own understanding of the subject. The importance of using information in an ethical manner, including text, audio or video files, is emphasized at all grade levels.

Available online resources include EBSCO, World Book Online, United Streaming (digital video), and Multimedia Archive. In addition to Maharishi School’s libraries, students have access to the library resources of Maharishi University of Management and an extensive collection of books, periodicals, and videos from the Area Education Agency.
