Yet, finding a workable formula for teaching middle school students these important library and information skills is no easy task. Cambridge Stratford has published one viable option that can prove to lessen the burden.

The Library Experience: Sharing the Responsibility is designed as a team teaching instrument that includes complete, easy-to-use lessons. Each serves as a valuable aide that encourages the cooperation of teachers and library media specialist in teaching students the KEY information search and use strategies necessary for the completion of more advanced level work within all the disciplines.

The Library Experience is a comprehensive 9-lesson teaching program that covers the critical steps in the information search and use process. Complete, detailed and easy-to-follow lessons make the Teachers Manual an ideal aide for team teaching, or for presentation by individual teachers or librarians. The Student Workbook provides relevant practice exercises, forms and background information to help fortify the lessons taught and their relationship to the students' Group Newspaper Project.
