2nd call...

In case you missed this the first time...
Hello LM-NETers!

Would YOU like to be an "S.O.S. High School Pioneer"?? 

If you would like to be part of the highly-recognized, national project S.O.S. for 
Information Literacy, which brings the very best informational literacy lesson 
plans to educators, then keep reading* 
"S.O.S. for Information Literacy" is a project, funded by the Institute of Museum & 
Library Services (IMLS), to create a national K-12 multimedia database of 
information literacy lesson plans and related teaching materials for library media 
specialists and others who teach these important skills. 

The K-8 version of S.O.S. was launched last October at the AASL national 
conference. We recently received funding to extend S.O.S. to the high school and 
college levels. We are hoping you will help build this tremendous, free resource 
for the professional library media specialist.

As a HS Pioneer, you will be asked to contribute two of your best information 
literacy lesson plans to the S.O.S. database within the next six months. The lesson 
plan must be "tried n' true," that is, a lesson you have already successfully 
taught, and must include all of the information required by the S.O.S. template. We 
invite you to visit the K-8 S.O.S. site at to 
get an idea of what information is included in each lesson plan.

Once we have the first 100 lesson plans in the database, we will provide you with 
exclusive access to the database as it develops. Some Pioneers will also be invited 
to participate in other S.O.S. activities, such as our Advisory Board, Progressive 
Feedback Panel, and Reviewer Team . The database will be password-protected, with 
only Pioneers having access, until we officially launch the high school site, 
sometime in spring 2008.
If you currently work in a high school library and would like to be part of the 
S.O.S. Pioneers, please contact Donna Boyce at asap with the 
following information:
Your Name
School Name
School Location (city and state)
Grade Span
# Years Experience as LMS
If you decide to be an S.O.S. HS Pioneer and send the required information to 
Donna, we'll contact you in the next two weeks to tell you next steps. We look 
forward to an exciting future as we work together to create the nation's premier 
information literacy resource!
