Elementary and Secondary Core Curriculum Standards. Levels K-12. Library Media.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
The Utah State Board of Education established a policy requiring the identification of specific core curriculum standards that must be completed by all kindergarten through grade 12 students as a requisite for graduation. The core curriculum consequently represents standards of learning that are essential for all students. This document presents the core curriculum standards for the state's library-media program. The library-media-skills core curriculum is based on four essential activities: (1) identifying and locating information and resources; (2) selecting and using information and resources; (3) evaluating information and resources; and (4) appreciating and evaluating children's literature. Core standards are identified for each grade level. Specific objectives are listed for kindergarten through grade 6. Beginning with grade 7, library media skills are infused into the language-arts core curriculum and will be infused into other curriculum areas as the supporting documents are revised. Standards for grades 7 through 12 that relate to library-media skills are listed, along with objectives for each standard, which are to be implemented in a series of projects and papers students will write.
