ACRL announces the publication of The Discovery Tool Cookbook: Recipes for Successful Lesson Plans, edited by Nancy Fawley and Nikki Krysak.
The Discovery Tool Cookbook showcases tested lessons by librarians and practitioners for teaching information literacy using a discovery tool. The third volume in the successful ACRL Cookbook series features “recipes” sorted by lesson type and level of student preparedness, including all the information needed to replicate (or customize) each dish. The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education is infused in each of the 49 lessons, which suit a mix of abilities, learning outcomes, and patron types, including K-12 and ELL students. The cookbook highlights many options for flipping instruction to maximize learning outside of the classroom.
The Discovery Tool Cookbook is essential for all academic and school librarians wanting to create fun lesson plans that incorporate a discovery layer.
The Discovery Tool Cookbook: Recipes for Successful Lesson Plans is available for purchase in print through the ALA Online Store and Amazon.com; and by telephone order at (866) 746-7252 in the U.S. or (770) 442-8633 for international customers.
