Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

What's All This About Common Core Standards?

Common Core State Standards...it's quite a buzz term.  Libraries are increasingly being asked to understand and support them.  But what does it all mean??

According to the mission statement of the Common Core State Standard Initiative:  "The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers."  

I'm not sure I fully understand what the standards are or how we are going to be called upon to support them, but help is on the way!
