This report focuses on resource-based learning programs and describes ways in which such programs can (1) provide for students' individual differences in learning rate and style; (2) maximize opportunities for exceptional students; and (3) familiarize students with the use of a wide range of learning materials, including modern technology. The relationship of resource-based learning to the library resource center is also described, and the role of the principal in developing programs and as a curriculum leader and change agent are examined. The roles of both the classroom teacher and the teacher-librarian in cooperatively planning, implementing, and evaluating resource-based programs are described, with emphasis placed on the need to teach students the library/learning skills required to use resources effectively in the context of classroom learning needs, not as isolated library skills lessons. The last section outlines the assistance that centralized resource services can provide at the board or district level. An annotated bibliography covers the library resource center, the teacher-librarian's role, the use of media in learning programs, learning skills, and curriculum design. Additional ministry documents and Canadian periodicals are also listed. (LMM)
