Supplementing the new AASL Standards

The April 2008 issue of Teacher Librarian will focus on the new AASL Learning Standards with the deadline being Jan 5 for any of you that would like to write a piece. However, I am thinking of writing a collaborative book with any who would like to participate. It would be something like a graphic organizer. Each page would take a central concept from the standards such as: Inquiry. This would be centered in the middle of the page. Then around that central idea would be border sections dealing with: Definition of the concept; what the research says; what the best practices literature says; and Implications for school librarians.Let me know if you'd like to work on a page or two.

  • I think this sounds great! I would also want to see examples of lesson/unit plans that address the standard(s), and that occur within a 21st century context - i.e. real-world, global connections, collaborative for students, use new technologies, etc.
  • This sounds like a fascinating idea! I might be interested!
