  • Welcome
  • MCPS, size of school, % of FARMS, How long at this school and when we graduated from CLIS. [Give details from Schools at a Glance. Share Trifold Brochure]
  • [Handout on WCHS Resources—(red book on upper left corner)]
  • There are 3 major instances where the SLMS has opportunities for collaboration with teachers: Curriculum Instruction Technology Support Information Literacy Skills Integration
  • Information literacy from picture books to newspapers!!
  • Just as AASL has new standards, MD just rolled out new standards—technology and ethical use of information have been woven throughout the standards instead of making them their own isolated standard.
  • Cogs represent our framework of learning: collaboration, curriculum & planning, expectation & evidence of student learning. The framework breaks down if any of the components fail or are not present.
  • Joint planning facilitates learning. Rigor doesn’t occur in isolation! When you begin, begin small…Work with early adopters. [Handout: 10 Tips] Share your knowledge, establish a friendly environment, be a lifelong learner…
  • Students work together in person and virtually… [Handout: Key Words..]
  • Ask this question. The next slides will go into deeper explanation of our role in the school.
  • Cover how we collaborate with the classroom teacher.
  • Everything that the SLMS does must be related to the impact that it has on Student Learning. Collect data and provide research on how student learning improves with our influence and guidance. [Handout: Doug Johnson—Tools to improve collaborative experiences.]
  • This slide nicely introduces a new paradigm in MCPS SLMP PD. We are being encouraged to develop a PLC centered around one of the new standards and my colleague, Paige and I have chosen technology as our focus for this year at WCHS.
  • This video is an example of a project that we are doing this year. Collaboration takes on many configurations and this is an example of how 2 media specialists used an opportunity to combine their Professional Development, Professional Learning Communities, Professional Development Plans and technology integration to all work together!
  • Summarize presentation. Ask if they have additional ways that the SLMS can support the classroom teacher.
