Event Description

Common Core is more than a new set of language arts standards; for school librarians, Common Core presents new opportunities for collaboration and for library program services. In this webinar, we will survey the standards and appendices, discuss what the standards mean to teachers, and explore the exciting implications for our school library programs.

Webinar Materials: Attendees should be able to readily reference the Common Core standards during the webinars, including the appendices. Options include:

Other options are to download the app on your personal device, or purchase a flip book (ex. Common Core Standards and Strategies Flip Chart, by Michael L. Lujan. Published by Mentoring Minds).

Note: The webinars will be focusing on the ELA Standards as opposed to the Math Standards.

This 60-minute webinar will be delivered via Adobe Connect. Log-in information will be emailed approximately one week before the course.

Presented by: Michelle Cates
Michelle’s school library programs strive to invigorate research and literature through digital technology, games, acting, and excitement… an engaging dynamic derived from sixteen years’ experience, a master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction, as well as master’s in Library Science.

With Common Core, our library profession is changing; these new standards epitomize the programming we librarians have advocated for years, providing an exciting opportunity for leadership and patron services unparalleled in our careers.

National Board Certified, twice-winner of the Florida Power-Library School Award and recipient of the 21st Century Library Media Specialist certification, Michelle presents webinars and workshops for librarians through which we will define our role in Common Core and the future of education.
