@Your School Library:
Resources for Common Core

Create (or adapt) a research unit that uses library resources and fulfills common core standards
Identify library resources that could easily be incorporated into lessons
Identify common core standards that could most easily be achieved through use of library resources
Evaluate tech tools for use with research lessons
"Print" Sources
Common Core State Standards
Based on UbD principles or "Big Ideas"
State can contribute 15% of content
PA AS = academic standards (not part of common core, added by PA State)
We are creating writers, listeners, thinkers, readers and researchers

Shifts from previous standards:
Text complexity is important
Students must analyze, infer and provide evidence
Writing to sources crucial (not just in English)
Huge emphasis on research
Importance placed on mastery of writing and speaking
Importance placed on "academic vocabulary" (not necessarily technical)
Informational Literacy
How can you incorporate these resources into a unit for your subject area while utilizing Common Core State Standards?

Use this time to collaborate with one another and with the librarian. Start working on a research-based unit that aligns with CCSS.
These are the more wide-reaching standards:
Selecting informational texts & literary non-fiction
Drawing evidence from primary & secondary resources
Evaluating sources
Integrating diverse media
Evaluating arguments
Synthesizing information
Research Process: Developing research topic and questions
Research Process: Accessing, identifying and evaluating resources
Research Process: Note-taking strategies
Producing and Publishing with technology
Using information ethically and responsibly

Find relevant books through the Online Public Access Catalog - Destiny

Find eBooks and check them out through Destiny at home!

Incorporate CCSS and 21st Century Skills:
Online literature circles: Wanda Wiki http://wandawiki.wikispaces.com/
Book summaries through Voki, book trailers through Animoto
Find reliable resources quickly using keywords

Books - Access PA, NoveList (through EBSCO)

Articles - EBSCO Host, SIRS Discoverer, Omnifile

Arguments or current issues - Facts on File Issues & Controversies, Point of View (through EBSCO)

Have students present the research that they found through a Prezi, Glogster, Google Presentation

From the library homepage, your librarian can post pathfinders, required resources for projects, free full text resources, reading lists, student projects, and more! Just ask!

Why do we need to know all of this?

According to Common Core, 70% of texts in a student's academic life are to be informational texts (which can include a variety of primary source media). Informational texts often must be up-to-date, and therefor ever-changing. You can find these texts through library resources or by asking your librarian.
