Common Core & School Wide Literacy Thrusts Librarians Into Leadership Role

Common Core & School Wide Literacy Thrusts Librarians Into Leadership Role | Common Core and Staff | Scoop.it

By Catherine Gewertz

Education Week

 

Already equipped with inquiry-based skills, librarians are helping teachers acquire the instructional methods they need to adopt.

Literacy is the "common ground of the common core" (Janet Allen) and the expectation is that literacy is now a shared responsibility among all teachers. That means that close reading, writing, listening, speaking, and collaborating should be a normal part of instruction in every classroom every day.

 

The minute we gave our teachers the results of our school wide diagnostic assessment and taught them how to determine the text complexity of their course materials and the expected comprehension level of the students, they made a beeline for the library. Instead of being a nicety, our librarian instantly became a necessity to quality instruction in every classroom.
