Big 6

Super 3

#1 Task Definition

Plan (Beginning)

Before I do anything:

  • What am I supposed to do?

    • Information needed to complete the task
  • What will it look like if I do a really good job?

  • What do I need to find out (questions)

#2 Information Seeking Strategies

#3 Location and Access

Do (Middle)

  • How can I do the job?

    • If you forget your steps, go back to the beginning
  • What can I use to find what I need?

  • Now I need to make something to show what I learned

  • View, read, tell a story, make a picture, etc.

#4 Use of Information

#5 Synthesis

#6 Evaluation

Review (End)

  • Did I do what I was supposed to do?

  • Do I feel okay about this?

  • Am I proud of my work?

  • Should I do something else before I turn it in?
