Library Curriculum Guide and Handbook for Librarians. Revised Edition.
Kelly, Joanne; And Others
This 2-part handbook for school librarians and media specialists addresses both the library skills curriculum for the school district (K-12) and administrative procedures for school libraries. The first section lists general student goals for library instruction, ideas for skills and activities to be taught at all grade levels, and the thinking processes that are the desired outcome of the instruction. A brief discussion of the library skills curriculum includes a sequence of developmental concepts as well as an overview of the program. The curriculum for each grade level is presented in tabular form, including developmental concepts, procedures, materials, and integrated classroom activities; separate lists of resources are provided for the various grade levels. The administrative section begins with hints for the new librarians and proceeds to selection tools, policy, and procedures for dealing with challenged materials; ordering procedures; maintenance and management, including personnel, record keeping, inventory, and procedures for collection maintenance; supplementary resources, i.e., other libraries, library systems, and community resources; and such miscellaneous matters as substitutes, gifts, and reserves systems. Descriptions of instructional activities and worksheets for students are appended. (RBF)
