Common Core: An Unparalleled Opportunity for Elementary School Librarians to Shine
November 6, 2013
In this Demco-sponsored webinar, author and librarian Toni Buzzeo will lead a lively discussion of the Common Core through the librarian’s lens.
The Common Core State Standards curriculum has brought us to an unprecedented time where the national curriculum for Reading and Writing so closely matches the instructional knowledge base and skill set of school librarians. Our opportunity to shine — and to become indispensable instructional leaders in our schools — is now. However, if we fail to engage, this may also be our last real opportunity to secure our essential roles in schools.
Learn how to:
- Identify which of the new Common Core State Standards for Reading and Writing mirror the skills school librarians are uniquely prepared to teach
- Approach teachers with suggestions for meaningful instructional partnership to meet the new standards
- Play an active and essential role in teaching these standards whether your library program is fixed or flexible
