This book addresses Common Core State Standard curriculum resources to assist the school librarian in collaborating with classroom teachers.

Librarians are being asked to understand the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and their implications to programming and instruction, as well as to collection development planning. Using lesson plans originally published in School Library Monthly, this title builds upon them, adding many additional plans that address CCSS issues. The plans will help you implement the standards and can also be used as stepping stones to facilitate planning conversations and collaboration with teachers to co-teach lessons correlated with the standards.

The book begins with an overview of the CCSS—what they are, how are they different from the content standards, and what the implications are for schools where the state has adopted them, including what the CCSS mean for collection development. It then goes on to explore the opportunities the CCSS present for the school librarian, looking at how you can become a leader in employing the process. The majority of the book is devoted to reproducible lesson plans, organized by curricular area or topic and grade level for ease of use.
