Library Media Program Curriculum Frameworks.
Elmira City School District, NY.
This document presents a curriculum framework for Elmira City School District library media programs. Its intent is that library media specialists and teachers in all areas of instruction (Pre-K to 12) work collaboratively under the supervision of the principal to design and implement their own site-based version of this curriculum plan. This guide includes the Elmira City School District Mission and goals for 1997; seven district standards for learner outcomes; a description of how the library media program can enable students to achieve each of the district standards; and an overview of the development of library services to include information technology, facility requirements, and the role of the library media program as an integral part of teaching/learning in the school. Following the library media program philosophy statement and five program standards, objectives of the library media curriculum and program assessments are charted for each of the standards. Descriptive statements and action steps for enabling quality programs are provided for each of the curriculum standards; the program assessments identify learning objectives according to educational level. Finally, assessment criteria to help create the building-based component of the district's media center program are noted. A glossary of terms is also included. (AEF)
