Your Common Core Secret Weapon. Onondaga - Cortland - Madison Counties BOCES. All Aboard!: Implementing Common Core offers school librarians an opportunity to take the lead.

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 (—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.

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. What are student learning outcomes?
