Explores ways that librarians can use popular culture to teach information literacy to high school students, describing how to find and incorporate pop culture, create special activities, use publicity, and create a school-wide information literacy program.We use four or five entire class sessions that relate directly to their daily class topics to immerse them in the library and the information that they are seeking. The instruction is subtle, and they dona#39;t seem to notice that they are being instructed in research skills and information ... We also bring in popular culture with examples from TV shows, movies, and the media that present biased views about topics.
