See What the Future Holds! Introducing New Grade Level Learning Goals for IL Instruction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A work-group from the Oregon Association of School Libraries (OASL) and community college librarians developed specific learning goals for grades K-14 (through the first two years of college), cross-referenced to the Common Core State Standards as well as the Association of College & Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and others. The key challenge for K-14 grade students is to develop information literacy (IL) skills progressively and iteratively, over time, which will lead to independent learning and a brighter future. The new Oregon Grade Level Learning Goals were written in the style of the Common Core standards, but embrace the six frames of ACRL's Framework. This session will take you on an exploratory journey of what the new Learning Goals are, how they impact IL instruction in grades K-14, and what the future holds for learners who develop these skills. Walk away with online access to the Learning Goals and related materials, an understanding of the connections to other standards/frameworks, and interact with writers of the new framework. The Learning Goals are endorsed by OASL.
