Common Core State Standards: Getting Ready for K–8 Research
Whether you’re a public or school librarian, you will be impacted by the rollout of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). For the first time, the majority of states will have identical learning standards in math and English language arts (ELA). The great news for librarians is that research skills and projects are included in CCSS at all grade levels. Cherry Lake’s authors have been engaged deeply in what great research looks like in the digital age. In this program, presented by Kristin Fontichiaro and sponsored by Cherry Lake Publishing, learn specific strategies that public and school librarians can employ to become active partners in CCSS implementation, and the Cherry Lake resources that can help you get there. Gillian Engberg, Books for Youth editorial director at Booklist Publications, will moderate this free, hour-long webinar.
