The Library Media Program: A Maryland Curricular Framework.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore. Div. of Library Development and Services.
This publication provides guidelines designed to assist Maryland library media administrators and specialists in planning, developing, and implementing kindergarten through twelfth grade library media programs. It provides a broad outline from which local systems may construct library media programs integrated with other curricular units. The guide is organized into four parts: (1) the Philosophy; (2) Goals and Subgoals; (3) Illustrative Objectives; and (4) the Curriculum Development Process. The first part defines the philosophy of the school library media program and describes its relationship to society, the learner, and the school curriculum. The second part presents the goals and subgoals of the school library media program, i.e., statements of desired outcomes derived from the philosophy which bring direction and clarity to the program. Expectancies, which further delineate the scope of the goals and subgoals, are also described. The third part presents some sample objectives showing how the goals and subgoals may be treated at particular learning levels. The final part describes how to develop and use goals, subgoals, and objectives in the preparation of library media scopes and sequences that encourage integrated instruction. The following materials are appended: an example of a local sequence; sample curriculum framework matches for art, English/language arts, math, physical education, science, and social studies; a library media curriculum match matrix; a glossary; examples of how required Maryland competency objectives can be placed in the library media framework by local school systems; and the names and addresses of the Maryland Library Media Curriculum Task Force.
