Creating Data Literate Students provides high school librarians and educators with foundational domain knowledge to teach a new subset of information literacy skills -- data and statistical literacy, including: statistics and data comprehension; data as argument; and data visualization. Data -- both raw and displayed in visualizations -- can clarify or confuse, confirm or deny, persuade or deter. Students often learn that numbers are objective, though data in the real world is rarely so. In fact, visualized data -- even from authoritative sources -- can sometimes be anything but objective. Librarians and classroom educators need to be as fluent with quantitative data as they are with text in order to support high schoolers as they engage with data in formal and informal settings. We asked contributors to this volume -- experts in high school curriculum, information literacy and/or data literacy -- to explore the intersections between data and curriculum and identify high-impact strategies for demystifying data for educators and students alike.

Fake News in Context defines fake news and sets it within a historical and international context. Helping readers to become more skilled at detecting misinformation, the book also demonstrates how such knowledge can be leveraged to facilitate more effective engagement in civic education. Distinguishing between fake news and other forms of misinformation, the book explains the complete communication cycle of fake news: how and why it is created, disseminated and accessed. The book then explains the physical and psychological reasons why people believe fake news. Providing generic methods for identifying fake news, Farmer also explains the use of fact- checking tools and automated algorithms. The book then details how various literacies, including news, media, visual, information, digital and data, offer unique concepts and skills that can help interpret fake news. Arguing that individuals and groups can respond and counter fake news, which leads to civic engagement and digital citizenship, the book concludes by providing strategies for instruction and tips for collaborating with librarians. Including a range of international examples, Fake News in Context will be of interest to teaching faculty, and students of library and information science, communication studies, media studies, politics and journalism. Librarians and information professionals will also find a valuable resource in this book.

In college and university libraries across the nation, information literacy has become more than just an area of instruction - it has become part of the core mission of the organization. This step-by-step guide is designed to show academic library managers, instructors, and staff how to create a synthesized information literacy plan. The authors offer guidance about how to decide what to teach, when and how to deliver instruction, how to assess outcomes, and revise plans based on assessment results. The preliminary steps - team building, needs assessment, environmental scans, timelines, and goal setting - are outlined. Then key sections provide methods for writing, maintaining, assessing, and promoting the finalized plan. The writing process - establishing a structure, setting priorities, addressing audiences, finalizing and approving the document, and more - is simplified and explained. Special sections include lists of information literacy support associations, definitions, best practices, and Web sites. The CD-ROM enables users to adapt and print their own planning workbook, checklists, and supporting documents to use individually or with larger groups and committees.
