Educators have wrestled with the delineation of important curriculum content for decades. What is important, and how can the school library help? Written by well-known educators and school librarians, this new work--the second in the Principles and Practice Series--explores educational principles and research, and connects national curriculum trends to current library practice. The book features eleven chapters, illustrated throughout with tables and figures. Each chapter explains major concepts and standards involved with curriculum development, instruction, and assessment, and presents real-life examples of effective practice.
An essential compendium filled with research and best practice, this volume provides important insight into the underlying principles of successful teaching and learning in the school library media center. Educators and library practitioners will gain a better understanding of the library media center's pivotal role and learn how best to empower students to become independent and lifelong learners.
