The instructional role of librarians is central to the goals of the Common Core State Standards
Instructional Shifts1. Balancing Informational and Literary Texts Teacher Librarian’s Role: •Provide students equal number of informational and literary texts •Ensure coherent instruction about content •Teach strategies for informational texts •Teach “through” and “with” informational texts •Scaffold for the difﬁculties that informational texts present to students •Ask students, “What is connected here? How does this ﬁt together? What details tell you that?
Instructional Shifts2. Staircase of Complexity Teacher Librarian’s Role: •Ensure students are engaged in more complex texts at every grade level •Engage students in rigorous conversation •Provide experiences with complex texts •Give students less to read, let the “re-read” •More time on more complex texts •Provide scaffolding when necessary •Get kids inspired and excited about the ﬂuency and richness of language
Instructional Shifts3. Text-Based Answers Teacher Librarian’s Role: •Facilitate evidence-based conversations with students, dependent upon the text •Have discipline about asking students where in the text to ﬁnd evidence •Plan and conduct rich conversations about the “stuff” that the writer is writing about. •Keep students in the text to qualify their conversations answers •Identify questions that are text-dependent, worth asking/exploring •Provide students the opportunity to read the text, encounter references to another text, another event and to dig in more deeply into the text to try and ﬁgure out what is going on
Instructional Shifts4. Writing from SourcesTeacher Librarian’s Role:•Expect that students will generate their own informational texts (less time onpersonal narratives)•Present opportunities to write from multiple sources about a single topic•Give opportunities to analyze, synthesize ideas across many texts to draw anopinion or conclusion•Find ways to push towards a style of writing where the voice comes fromdrawing on powerful, meaningful evidence•Give permission to students to start to have their own reaction and draw theirown connections
Instructional Shifts5. Academic Vocabulary Teacher Librarian’s Role: •Develop students’ ability to use and access words that show up in everyday text and that may be slightly out of reach •Be strategic about the kind of vocabulary you’re developing •Determine the words that students are going to read most frequently and spend time mostly on those words
CCSS Standards > Research • Short / sustained research based on focused ?s • Gathering information, assessing credibility • Integrating information • Textual evidence to support analysis, reﬂection
