CISSL Study |The New Jersey Study of School Libraries: One Common Goal – Student Learning

CISSL Study |The New Jersey Study of School Libraries: One Common Goal – Student Learning | Hudson HS Learning Commons | Scoop.it
Deborah Owen's insight:

School libraries have much more to offer than just access to books or other resources. In fact the statewide study, “One Common Goal: Student Learning,” found that student research capabilities and success are explicitly linked directly to collaborative inquiry-based instruction implemented through instructional teams, where the instructional role of the school librarian is key to helping develop deep knowledge and understanding, rather than that of information collection.

Teacher Collaboration: The Essential Common-Core Ingredient

Teacher Collaboration: The Essential Common-Core Ingredient | Hudson HS Learning Commons | Scoop.it
Helping teachers work together will be essential to the success of the common core, say Vicki Phillips and Robert Hughes.

"The standards are an opportunity for greater collaboration, fresher thinking, and a rearticulation of shared goals for teachers and students. By collaborating with each other and with instructional specialists through cycles of examining student work, creating hypotheses about how to implement common-core-aligned lessons, implementing them, and making adjustments in their practice in real time, teachers can find the best ways to help their students reach these higher expectations while still maintaining individual styles and flexibility."
