Common Core Resources Too Good To Miss (Winter 2013)

In her article on how New York City school librarians are connecting with teachers and students through the Common Core, Elizabeth Naylor-Gutierrez writes, “The adoption of the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) is a gift to school librarians — the CCLS emphasis on the process of learning aligns perfectly with the framework of information fluency skills that guides instruction in the library program.” She then goes on to outline how New York City school library staff are connecting with teachers and students through the Common Core. To support these connections the New York City Department of Education Office of Library Services developed a variety of tools. These can help others to move forward with the Common Core in their own school.
