Standards for the 21st-Century Learner in Action
Coatney, Sharon
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v25 n8 p27-29 Apr 2009
The new "Standards for the 21st-Century Learner IN ACTION", presented like a colorful flowchart, was previewed without fanfare at the annual Midwinter meeting of the American Library Association in Denver, Colorado, in January (American Library Association 2009). This new publication does a good job in further defining the student learning standards and in giving a step-by-step planning guide in how to think about and begin to implement these standards. It also provides a scope and sequence that can be easily adapted by schools and plugged into existing curriculum. But, it does not provide the guidelines for a successful school library program that implements these standards. Indications are that another publication encompassing the program guidelines for school library media programs (Information Power revised) is yet to come.
