Martin, Ann E.; Saykanic, Donna M.
This curriculum guide identifies minimum library and media skills students should master as well as expanded and new library skills that should be introduced and developed in all elementary classrooms. It begins with the mission of the Passaic School District, a message to classroom teachers and elementary school librarians, the mission of the library media program, a description of the philosophy of the school library media program, the goals of the school library media program, and general information for teachers. It then presents the skills, outcomes, and objectives for the readiness level, the first-through sixth-grade levels, and the advanced level. The curriculum guide then presents evaluation procedures and discusses technology in the library media center. Contains a 39-item glossary, 16 references, and a 93-item bibliography; appendixes contain the Library Bill of Rights, the School Library Bill of Rights, confidentiality information, evaluation and selection standards, a checklist for evaluating textbooks, and information on the New Jersey Library Network.
