Welcome to the Big6
You can do BIG things with Big6 Skills! Big6 is a six-stage model to help anyone solve problems or make decisions by using information. Some call it information literacy, information communication, or ICT skills, or a process, but we call it the Big6.
Using the Big6 information literacy process, you will identify information research goals, seek, use, and assemble relevant, credible information, then to reflect— is the final product effective and was my process efficient. The Big6 information literacy process is completely transferable to any grade level, subject area, or workplace. Big6, state and national instructional standards, and your curriculum all work together hand-in-hand.

Big6 by the Month is our test and proven approach to a comprehensive and systematic information & technology skills instructional program.

WE CAN HELP - with effective Big6 and Super3 lessons in the context of classroom-based assignments. This webinar will cover all the details!
The instructors for Big6 by the Month are Mike Eisenberg, Janet Murray, and Colet Bartow with support from Sue Wurster.
