OELMA Conference (2012)
  • Ann Marie Smeraldi, Cleveland State University
Librarians have been lighting the way to college and career readiness for decades. With the implementation of the Common Core Standards on the horizon, school librarians have a fresh opportunity to breathe new life into their library instruction programs and enlighten students’ minds. During this session the presenter will compare the AASL and ACRL information literacy standards and illuminate their presence in the new Common Core. Using all three standards as a framework, the presenter will share lesson plans designed to teach high school students essential information literacy skills that will help them sparkle and shine in college and the workplace. Participants will have the opportunity to share their lesson plans and discuss best practices for college and career readiness.
