Developing Information Literacy Leaders

Getting Started

Not only for use in their research, but also on their quest to better understand the world around them. Use this resource to teach your students how to become information literacy leaders!

Teach students that while on their search for reliable information, first looks can be deceiving!

Lesson 2

Lesson 3

The Quest for Truth

Take students on an information literacy voyage through this interactive QR code activity.
