Do any of you have your curriculum typed into a scope and sequence or pacing guide format? If you do and you are will to share it, I'd love a copy. If not are you willing to collaborate with me to create one. It would be a working document this year. I have been investigation on-line and gathering ideas from the DOE and ALA. I am a new librarian and have not yet been given a curriculum to teach as of yet.

I am also creating a scope and sequence chart. The change in the AASL standards recently means noone has as yet developed the scope and sequence with it in mind yet. It will take far more minds than just my isolated one to do that.

There is also a book put out by Linworth by Jane Bandy Smith called Teaching and Testing Information Literacy Skills.

Good luck! Let me know how it goes.

Thanks a bunch! The more examples I read the better.
Hi Kay!

Here's our district's stuff. Happy researching! :)

We are working on developing a scope and sequence for our district. As we create, I will share it with you.
Here are the standards for my district, Modesto City School District in Modesto, CA.
There are many other resources available on the site, as well.

In our county school system, we created a Scope of Instructional Focus, not a Scope and Sequence, understanding that there were sets of skills that we should be teaching at each grade level year, but realizing that, because our schools could be so different (we are a very large county with 137 elementary schools--some are Title 1, some in very affluent areas and some with Gifted and Talented Centers) that we each should have the freedom to structure how and when we teach those skills throughout the year. I am attaching this document.

I personally have gone through this document and made lists of skills for each grade level, sorted by Introduce, Reinforce, Master, so that I can make sure I am covering all the skills in each grade level that we have as a county agreed are important. I have a curriculum map for my own planning and use--a chart in Word--that is by week and by grade level. This is a living document, however--I am constantly changing it and improving it and each summer I take time to look at the notes I have made on it ("find a different book" "rework lesson" "X") and retype changes for the next year, but it is great to look at it each Friday knowing that I had a pretty good plan that I made when I was not so stressed and tired. I am flexibly scheduled for instruction in grades 3-6, so in those grade level columns, I just have a list of lessons that I need to make sure happen throughout the year with those students, but they are not assigned to a particular week.
