Information Literacy/Library Media Curriculum
To thrive in the 21st Century, Missoula County Public Schools' students must employ a process of inquiry that can be adapted to any information need. By using information literacy skills in all aspects of learning, our students become empowered and engaged lifelong learners. By learning to access and evaluate information, our students gain an appreciation and respect for diverse ideas and creative expressions. By learning strategies to manage and ethically use information, our students open the door to the world in all of its diversity. MCPS library media specialists, in collaboration with classroom and content area teachers, empower all students to become information literate.
