“I’d like to share with you and others on the list a health information literacy curriculum entitled, “Who Can You Trust? Health Information and the Internet” http://www.rvhcc.org/pdf/HIL_Sourcebook.pdf
The curriculum was developed as part of a program to improve health literacy among youth and young adults. Teachers, librarians and youth in middle and high schools and literacy practitioners, public librarians and young adults in non-formal adult education setting in rural Maine develop and pilot the program. The following article describes how the curriculum was developed and used and includes both formative and summative evaluation results.
