The Big6

It is useful to have a model that helps to guide researchers through the research process. At KLASS we have chosen the Big6 model.

Big6 describes itself on its website as:

Using the Big6 information literacy process, you will identify information research goals, seek, use, and assemble relevant, credible information, then to reflect— is the final product effective and was my process efficient. The Big6 information literacy process is completely transferable to any grade level, subject area, or workplace. Big6, state and national instructional standards, and your curriculum all work together hand-in-hand.
