CCSS and Librarians

Kristin Fontichiaro’s Session, “Common Core Strategiess and Librarians”

SESSION DESCRIPTION: The days when recall-based fact reports are over. How do we help stretch our students’ thinking in new ways that not only meet but exceed the research standards in the Common Core State Standards? We’ll look at the Stripling Inquiry Model as a foundation for how we can deepen learning experiences for students. See how we can combine classic and emerging strategies to make research projects more challenging — and fun — for students.
