In collaboration AASL and Achieve published a new action brief linking libraries and librarians to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the School Librarian is available for download on the AASL and Achieve websites. Join AASL in an idea swap led by the AASL volunteers who worked on the action brief with Achieve. Use this exchange to propel the school library program into the center of teaching and learning in the era of CCSS. Learn how to recreate the idea swap activity with your own school teaching teams. Prior to viewing the webinar, be sure to download the action brief.
