Secondary Library Media and Information Skills Syllabus, Grades 7-12. Part I: Scope and Sequence.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
This syllabus was developed in response to the requirement in the New York State Board of Regents Action Plan for improving elementary and secondary library and information skills. The skills, taught by library media specialists and classroom teachers, are to be integrated into regular courses and cover all subject areas in order to afford students the opportunity to pursue new studies, synthesize new knowledge and experience with the known, and refine their ability to make judgments and decisions. The 23-part syllabus is designed to provide administrators, school media specialists, and classroom teachers with the framework for determining the specific content, scope, and sequence of instruction in library media and information skills at the secondary level. The guide is divided into three general areas of skill development: (1) inquiry and investigation; (2) reading guidance and literature appreciation; and (3) utilization of computer and nonprint resources. Each section contains an explanation of the concept, objectives derived from the concept, and learner outcomes. Grade levels appropriate for teaching and reinforcing the concepts are indicated. Appended materials include a statement of Regents goals for elementary and secondary students, a description of the school library media center and its functions, implications of the Regents action plan for library media programs, an overview of curriculum integration, and guidelines for teaching students who have handicapping conditions.
