Editorial Reviews

Review

"For the teacher-librarian, this book provides clear examples of how to prepare a just-in-time lesson on finding and evaluating information when learners are faced with a particular genre. Consideration should also be given to purchasing several copies if the teacher-librarian believes that students will profit from having a full guide….This book is worth serious consideration for those teaching advanced searching and evaluation skills at the secondary level."

"Each year one encounters new research guides. However, the Student Guide by Stebbins is worth serious attention. Living up to its intention of being essential reading (xi), it does a masterful job of integrating critical thinking skills, information sources, and database searching techniques, all in one concise paperback….[t]he Student Guide by Stebbins is the best literature guide for undergraduates that has crossed this reviewer's desk. Highly recommended for high school, college, and public libraries."

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By H. J. Sage on November 29, 2009
Format: Paperback
Here is a perfect example of how students are ripped off by the textbook industry. $48 for a 220-page paperback? Give me a break! As a teacher I have been fighting this stuff for years, but it goes on .... PS This book is something a lot of students need, but there are excellent free online sites like the Purdue OWL.
