Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The purpose of the project was to develop a Kindergarten through fifth grade information literacy, library and technology curriculum for the South Tama School District. There was little research available to direct creation of this type of curriculum. However, the Iowa Core Information Literacy Standards and the American Association of School Librarians Standards for the 21st-Century Learner provided guidance for this project. The Mankato Public School District Curriculum, the Iowa City Public School Technology Plan, and the Iowa City Public School Library Curriculum were consulted for additional information. The South Tama K-5 Information Literacy, Library and Technology Curriculum was designed on the Mid-Iowa School Improvement Consortium Curriculum Manager (MISIC) website.
