The Library Media Curriculum Guide is a document that has been created by a team of committee members from the local community, as well as Grosse Pointe School District administrators and dedicated media specialists. The purpose of this guide is to present revised content standards that connect National Library Standards, English Language Arts Common Core Standards, Michigan Technology Standards, sample lesson planning documents as well as sample assessments for units covered at each grade level. This updated curriculum guide is intended to increase the overall effectiveness of teaching the library standards and provide an instructional framework for equitable teaching and learning across the district.
The Library Media curriculum will continue to develop the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviors that lead to regular and enjoyable participation in the school library media program and its resources inside and outside its walls.
This is accomplished through a focus on the following four target areas:
- Love of Reading
- Information Literacy
- Digital Citizenship
- Media Technology
