Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this project was to develop a library curriculum for grades 3 and 4 structured in accordance with AASL and Common Core State Standards to meet the teaching role of the teacher librarian as defined by the State of Iowa Department of Education guidelines for School Libraries (Iowa Department of Education, 2007). Due to local circumstances, only the third grade curriculum was developed as a prototype for curricula in other grades. Developing a library curriculum for third and fourth grades, structured in accordance with AASL and Core Curriculum State Standards responds to standards defined by the State of Iowa Department of Education guidelines for School Libraries and lessens the demands on classroom teachers to help students develop information skills they can use across all subject areas.
