Common Core and school libraries: Come one come all!
The South Dakota State Library, in conjunction with the South Dakota Library Association, will be holding regional meetings at six locations for certified-teacher librarians, paraprofessional librarians, district librarians, library aides, and administrators who wish to learn more about the Common Core State Standards, and specifically the 4th R Research, as they relate to school libraries.
The regional meetings will be held from 1-4 p.m. as follows:
Tuesday, Dec. 4 Winner High School Library, Winner
Wednesday, Dec. 5 Douglas High School Library, Box Elder
Thursday, Dec. 6 Agar-Blunt-Onida School Library, Onida
Tuesday, Dec. 11 Watertown High School Library, Watertown
Wednesday, Dec. 12 Brookings Middle School Library, Brookings
Thursday, Dec. 13 Roosevelt High School Library, Sioux Falls
These meetings came about as a group of library professionals met for a School Library Summit in Pierre in August to discuss current services within the states school libraries. As one of four goals set by the summit group, regional meetings were indicated as a way to provide training on the Common Core, as well as to provide a time for networking and collaboration for school librarians around the state.
