This one-hour session addresses the increasing demand of scholars and researchers for access to the underlying data that supports the conclusions in published materials.

The course is designed to introduce participants to the Understanding by Design Curriculum framework. Known as the Backward Design model, this framework is unique in that it begins with the end in mind. Rather than planning from an activity-centered focus, the school librarian first identifies the Big Ideas behind content standards. From these Big Ideas, the school librarian develops Enduring Understandings and Essential Questions to guide student inquiry. The school librarian then designs assessments that provide evidence of student learning.

Diane McNutt and Jane Light, Silicon Valley Reads, will describe this library’s "one book-one community" program in Santa Clara (Calif.) County.
