Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is one of a series of books which introduce and teach information skills, the essential processes by which information is retrieved, interpreted and evaluated, and which are fundamental to the successful delivery of the formal curriculum. This title concentrates on life skills, and is photocopiable. Intended primarily for use with young people from 11 to 16 and over, the books complement PSE and subject teaching across a wide ability range, and take students from simple alphabetical and numerical ordering through to the referencing and problem-solving skills involved in researching a project, accessing IT systems, analyzing statistical graphs and tables, mapwook and vocational skills.
