Parent Presentation Of Standards Pdf

  1. 1. 21st Century Information Skills Learning today means more than memorizing facts. It means learning @Your Library to learn for a lifetime. Savvy parents and educators know that the school library media center is key to teaching students not just to read but to practice the skills they need to seek, evaluate and use information throughout their lives. In fact, research shows those students from schools with professionally staffed, fully equipped libraries score higher on achievement tests. In 2007, the American Association of School Librarians introduced Standards for the 21st Century Learner. These standards guide school library programs and the educators who lead them.
  2. 2. A set of common beliefs guided the development of the standards. Reading is a window to the world. Inquiry provides a framework for learning. Ethical behavior in the use of information must be taught. Technology skills are crucial for future employment needs. Equitable access is a key component for education. The definition of information literacy has become more complex as resources and technologies have changed. The continuing expansion of information demands that all individuals acquire the thinking skills that will enable them to think on their own. Learning has a social context. School libraries are essential to the development of learning skills.

  10. 10. Find, evaluate and select appropriate resources to answer questions. After drawing a research question from a hat, students will determine which media center resource (internet, encyclopedia, atlas, nonfiction book, etc.) would be the best source for answering their question. After finding the answer, they must evaluate their source for authority, accuracy, relevancy and currency.
  11. 11. Demonstrate creativity by using multiple resources and formats. Students will prepare a brief PowerPoint presentation about their favorite animal using information from websites, an encyclopedia, computer clip art, and quotes from a fiction book or poem featuring their animal.
  12. 12. Contribute to the exchange of ideas within the learning community. After reading Crossing Bok Chitto by Tim Tingle and Brothers by Yin, two picture books which explore cross-cultural friendships, children will participate in a group discussion about the challenges and rewards of having a friend of a different race, religion or ethnicity.
  13. 13. Monitor gathered information and assess for gaps or weaknesses. Near the end of an in-depth social studies research project which will culminate in a paper, students will complete an evaluation checklist. The checklist will help the student determine whether they have the proper number of sources, if they have the information to properly cite their sources, and if the information they have found is current, authoritative, accurate and relevant. Students will meet one-on-one with the school library media specialist to discuss their evaluation before beginning their paper.
