Empire State Information Fluency Continuum
The re-imagined ESIFC includes increased or new attention to pre-kindergarten, multiple literacies,
digital citizenship and civic responsibility, multiple perspectives, personalization of learning, design
thinking, student voice and agency, and social and emotional growth. Different sections provide a PK-12
continuum of skills, identification of priority skills for every grade level, and graphic organizer
assessments for the priority skills.
The heart of the ESIFC is our students. It is our mission as school librarians and educators to prepare
each one of our students to develop the skills and agency to be both critical consumers and creators of
information as they navigate and succeed in their academic and personal lives.
We invite all educators to collaborate with their school librarians and use the ESIFC to guide the
teaching of information skills as an integral aspect of learning in every classroom and at all grade levels.
Together, we can ensure student success.
