Information skills instruction is a fundamental and vital part of K-12 education in the 21st century. The Handy 5 is an effective model for planning, teaching, and assessing information skills instruction. If we truly believe that all students can learn and that the role of teachers and library media specialists is to enhance learning, new ways of structuring the learning process must include systematic and frequent assessment throughout the learning process. This five-step model provides a framework for planning learning activities to accommodate frequent and systematic evaluation for the benefit of the students' success. The purpose of Part 1 explains the Handy 5. Part 2 outlines the theoretical background and presents the research that validated the model. Finally, Part 3 provides useful examples of the model's implementation.
