Library Media Overview
During Library Media class in grades 3-5, students will gain skills to identify print & digital information sources to answer research questions (e.g., online library catalog, online encyclopedias, databases, websites). Students will perform searches to locate information and evaluate digital sources for accuracy, relevancy, and appropriateness. Eventually, they create digital artifacts that answer research questions and that clearly communicate thoughts and ideas.
Students in grades 3-5 meet weekly with library media specialists to develop the research and media literacy skills as outlined in the American Association of School Libraries Standards Framework K-12.
