Learning in Depth (LiD) is an unusual program and tends, after the first simple description, to elicit enthusiasm from some people and hostility from others. While the basic idea is quite simple, we think the potential implications of the program for students, teachers, and schools are profound. In most of our literature we suggest beginning LiD as children start school.

The United States National Forum on Information Literacy defines information literacy as " ... the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand." [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Although this definition seems to be most commonly used, there are other definitions that are widely recognized as well. For example, it is also explained in terms of a set of competencies that an informed citizen of an information society ought to possess to participate intelligently and actively in that society. This includes "skepticism, judgement, free thinking, questioning, and understanding." [ 3 ] A number of efforts have been made to better define the concept and its relationship to other skills and forms of literacy.
In formal education , a curriculum ( pron.: / k ə ˈ r ɪ k jʉ l əm / ; plural: curricula / k ə ˈ r ɪ k jʉ l ə / or curriculums ) is the set of courses, and their content, offered at a school or university . As an idea, curriculum came from the Latin word "Currere" which means to run/to proceed , referring to the course of deeds and experiences through which children grow to become mature adults . A curriculum is prescriptive, and is based on a more general syllabus which merely specifies what topics must be understood and to what level to achieve a particular grade or standard. Curriculum has numerous definitions, which can be slightly confusing. In its broadest sense a curriculum may refer to all courses offered at a school.
