Librarians have been teaching information literacy for years.Thank you.
I would suggest if teachers are fortunate enough to have a librarian in the building to team up and work together on these lessons.
I am adapting your keyword lesson to fit my curriculum.

A librarian!

As a retired teacher and now tutor, I needed this instruction as much as my students who were not using reliable research sites.
