Designed to aid local districts in implementing local school improvement plans, this three-part curriculum guide begins by addressing the long-range planning of library media programs. The first part suggests a 10-step process for planning and provides an example of a 5-year improvement plan for library media programs, a checklist for evaluating a school program, and a form for outlining an action plan. The second part provides both a general statement of the desired library media learner outcomes and a scope and sequence of information and literature appreciation skills (expressed as behavioral objectives) for each grade from K through 12. Suggestions and forms for teacher/librarian planning of integrated units are also provided. The third part presents three illustrative units, one of which includes masters for overhead transparencies and another a bibliography. Each unit includes its goal, suggested grade level, learner outcomes for both the subject area and information skills, suggested activities, teaching strategies, evaluation activities, and the responsibilities of both the teacher and the library media specialist. Appendixes include an analysis of the services provided by the library media specialist presented as a pie chart; descriptions of those services at the elementary and the secondary levels; a list of procedures to be followed by media specialists and teachers as co-designers of curriculum; a sample media specialist evaluation instrument; and a table clarifying the roles of the school principal, media specialist, and teacher in the team approach to the library media program. An 18-item bibliography is included. (SD)
