Short Session Description (one line): A review of the "soft skills" one needs to be a competent researcher and consumer of information.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Teaching digital literacy to information users of any age cannot begin with a series of checklists. The bedrock of competent researchers and consumers of information is the "right stuff" - a series of attributes, habits and attitudes that enable you to find. evaluate and put to use authoritative, objective and comprehensive information about any topic. These include articulating your task before beginning your research; writing and organizing a comprehensive set of questions you want your research to answer; being skeptical and interrogating all potential resources; avoiding confirmation and keyword bias; and always asking Who, Why and When.

I would love suggestions for additional resources that I can share on teaching softer skills to K-12 students.
