Designing Learning Experiences for Deeper Understanding
Stripling, Barbara K.; Harada, Violet H.
School Library Monthly, v29 n3 p5-12 Dec 2012
Planning is the less visible part of the teaching and learning process; however, it serves as the blueprint for student learning. To conceptualize the unit or project as a holistic learning experience, the authors created the C.L.E.A.R. G.O.A.L.S. guidelines that address the major elements of unit planning. An essential step is identifying the specific standards that should be addressed. It's critical for librarians to be familiar not only with AASL's "Standards for the 21st-Century Learner" (2007), but also the standards that teachers must meet, e.g., the Common Core Standards, and to make the critical match between them. By working as a collaborative team of professionals, developing units based on C.L.E.A.R. G.O.A.L.S. and creating engaging lessons focused on the essential skills of critical thinking and inquiry, librarians can leverage their sources and talents to help students acquire enduring knowledge and the skills of lifelong learning.
