How Did We Get Here? A Reflection On The Long Tradition of Standards For School Learners, School librarians, And School Libraries (ALA 2018).
To understand where we have been, in terms of school library standards, and how we arrived at the point where we are today, please take a moment to reflect upon the following timeline of events.
* 2017 - National School Library Standards (AASL 2017):" School Library"
* 2007 - Standards for the 21st Century Learner (AASL 2007): Think, Create, Share, Grow!
"School Library Media Specialist"
"School Library Media Program"
"Media Programs: District and School (AASL and AECT 1975), reflected a greater emphasis on the librarian's role in teaching learners to communicate ideas through media creation as well as through information use (ALA 2018)."
* 1920 - 1959: Foundational Work.
1920's - "The Certain standards' focus on high-quality instruction and student engagement placed school librarians at the center of teaching and learning (ALA 2018)."
1945 - School Library Standards - School Libraries for Today and Tomorrow: Functions and Standards (ALA et al. 1945)...In these standards, school librarians were expected to have deep knowledge of their collections and to be knowledgeable about their learners' reading abilities and preferences (ALA 2018).
