LIS 701 Opportunity Knocks: The School Librarian and the Common Core

School librarians have a critical role in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). It is important to look at how the school librarian’s role will change because of the 12 instructional shifts embodied in the CCSS. A careful analysis of resources that are being published to help define the school librarian’s role is needed to help provide librarian’s with a cohesive vision of their place in this educational paradigm shift. Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of The School Librarian Action Brief and AASL Crosswalks, an alignment of AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and the Common Core State Standards, are a couple of the resources that will be analyzed. School librarians will develop an action plan for their educational situation that they can employ to become crucial participant in supporting teachers and students in the implementation of the CCSS.

LIS 702 Inquiry learning and the Common Core through School Librarian and Teacher Collaboration

School librarians and teachers can help themselves and others deal with the very hard shifts in teaching that come with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Schools are embracing inquiry-based learning and eschewing the “sage on the stage” method of teaching. This change is not easy for teachers and librarians. There are many strategies for co-teaching inquiry-based learning that can help students achieve the higher level CCSS learning goals. In looking at inquiry-based learning and strategies for co- and collaborative teaching school librarians and teachers will develop a model of co-teaching inquiry-based lessons with colleagues within their specific learning environments.
