LIS 532 Curriculum Role of the Media Specialist (3)

This course examines the curricular role of the school’s library media program. By means of clinical experiences, students learn from practitioners in a school library in their geographical area. A student-centered approach is used to design information literacy lesson plans and assess student learning outcomes based upon the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) and AASL’s Standards for the 21st Century Learner as well as other research-based inquiry models. Students engage in an interactive professional community and receive feedback from practitioners and peers. Discussions focus on problem solving, collection development, curriculum design, CCLS, AAPR, and instructional methods.
