GROUP VIEWING OF THE FOLLOWING WEBINAR, FOLLOWED BY A 30 MINUTE GROUP DISCUSSION
“C” is for Common Core State Standards and Collection development with practical application in public libraries, big or small: We will break down the Common Core Standards in Reading and Writing to understand what the expectations are for our elementary students and how we as librarians can support and enrich their learning. I'll share titles, new and classics, that align with Common Core and give examples of practical, fun activities to do with kids after reading the books. We will "decode" the language of the standards and put them into terms that librarians, educators, and parents can easily understand.
Youth services librarians in the public library and/or elementary school media specialists.
