Designing Learning for Evidence-Based Practice
Pappas, Marjorie L.
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v24 n5 p20-23 Jan 2008
The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has placed a significant focus on standards. Understandably, classroom teachers are focused on effectively covering their content area standards and are often reluctant to add information literacy skills to their lessons because they see no direct connection to the state achievement tests. However, a close examination of many state standards documents shows a significant correlation between the Information Literacy Standards (AASL and AECT) and content area standards. Library media specialists who found those correlations in their state standards and developed information skills lessons focused on those correlations with appropriate assessment are accumulating evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of the library media program. The Designing Learning for Evidence-Based Practice matrix, described in this article, provides a sequence of steps or a process for designing learning with documentation or evidence of the learning outcomes.
