However, they frequently are not informationally literate—they lack the skills of evaluating and using information effectively.

Additionally, participants will experience Kagan strategies that will enable students to utilize various informational text features to locate key facts in a text efficiently, acquire specific reading skills critical for evaluating information, and organize informational resources to create written research reports.
