Where does the CCS address the research process and technology? How will the CCS impact our positions as media specialists?
I was asked yesterday to present next Wednesday to staff how CCS includes the research process and to discuss what research projects have been completed with students over the past two years. I have been going through the common core standards, but need a crash course on how and where the research process is addressed. Your help would be much appreciated to point me to a specific area in the CCS that address research and technology.
Go to the Resources tab and the category Standards & Guidelines. I just put red asterisks in front of the AASL Common Core Crosswalk link to make it easier to find. Your research process info is under the "Writing Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects." They break it down by standards and by grade levels. Let me know if you need more than that.
PS When you go to the bottom of the page, you can print PDFs of the page or the entire AASL learning standards/writing standards crosswalk.
Isn't it great that AASL supports us with all of this information?! Hope you are an AASL member or considering becoming one.
How does it impact our positions as LMSs? It makes us indispensable.
