NOVELny and the Common Core: Summer Reading at New York Libraries: New York State Library. Libraries and the Common Core Learning Standards: Division of Library Development: New York State Library. Your Common Core Secret Weapon. Today I had the pleasure of presenting a session at the first ever Administrators' Day at the Upstate Technology Conference with Kristen Hearne and Monique German.

Your Common Core Secret Weapon

We have dubbed ourselves the Librarians in the Middle. Kristen even made us a super cute logo that we've talked about putting on a Moo card, a la Gwyneth and Tiff. When I found out that the Upstate Technology Conference was adding a day just for administrators I immediately thought that it would be a great time to present something about librarians. We often present to each other and never reach out to other groups and who has more power to change the landscape of librarianship (other than ourselves) than administrators. So I went online to submit a session proposal. Onondaga - Cortland - Madison Counties BOCES. For those receiving a score from the state 2013 Field Memo with explanation NEW!

All Aboard!: Implementing Common Core offers school librarians an opportunity to take the lead. By Rebecca Hill, 3/30/2012 OK, so school librarians weren’t invited to the party.

All Aboard!: Implementing Common Core offers school librarians an opportunity to take the lead.

When members of the National Educational Association, the National Council for Teachers of English, the International Reading Association, and the American Federation of Teachers met in 2010 to draft new benchmarks for language arts and literacy for our nation’s K–12 schools—the Common Core Curriculum State Standards (www.corestandards.org)—there weren’t any media specialists at the table. Even though school librarians have been longtime champions of information literacy, reading, and critical thinking—all prime pieces of Common Core—we weren’t asked for our input. And two years later, things still aren’t looking up for many of us. As a growing number of states and large school systems, including those in New York City, Boston, Cleveland, and Philadelphia, grapple with plans to implement the ambitious new standards, school librarians still aren’t consistently invited to pull up a chair.

It’s a worthy goal. Rubricforseniorcapstonecourse.pdf (application/pdf Object) Answering questions about library impact on student learning. Image by wordshore on Flickr This essay reports on a project which evaluated the Understanding Library Impacts (ULI) protocol, a suite of instruments for detecting and communicating library impact on student learning.

Answering questions about library impact on student learning

The project was a dissertation study conducted with undergraduates enrolled in upper-level and capstone history classes at six U.S. colleges and universities in 2011. My first essay for In the Library with The Lead Pipe introduced the protocol and provided background on the approach. This essay uses selected results from the 2011 project to demonstrate how the protocol works and suggests ways readers can get involved with future ULI projects. High expectations for higher education These are trying times in U.S. higher education. Support for teaching and learning is at the heart of most academic library mission statements. Just what outcomes do libraries influence? In my opinion, doing nothing is not an option. The ULI protocol is designed to meet this challenge. CIT Survey.

Common Core and School Librarians

Kramer Pamela K. Kramer is a former school librarian, Deputy Executive Director of AASL, Director of the DuPage Library System in Geneva, IL, and is a consultant with Pamela K. The Common Core Standards (CCS) are at hand! I asked Joyce Karon, a former school librarian, district coordinator, former member of the Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Board of Higher Education, to discuss these standards with me. Q: What are the Common Core Standards? A: The simple answer is that they are academic standards for K-12 education designed to prepare students for college and career readiness. Q:How are the CCS similar to or different from other standards? A: To begin with they are clearer. Q: What do the standards mean for students, for teachers? A: We all agree that students have a right to a good education.
