Information Literacy Through Literature

Published April 18, 2012 by electricbluegaloo

Part of information literacy is being able to identify the reliability of the information given what you know about the source.

Take one comment and discuss how this information could be construed as reliable or unreliable based on who said it.

ie

How would you view a fact about a magical creature if it was told to you by one of the following characters. Explain you response for each character in a paragraph stating your reason.

Hermione

Ron

Hagrid

An unknown witch or wizard from the 3 Broomsticks

OR

How would you view a fact about vampires if it was told to you by one of the following characters. Explain you response for each character in a paragraph stating your reason.

Edward

Bella

Jacob

An unknown customer at the camping supply store that Bella works at.

Your readers’ challenge is to think of a more engaging/interesting way of having the students present their response during a 1 hour session.

Have the students discuss the final character in relation to doing a “google” search and how to identify more reliable sources.
