      To Do Before the Institute

      Before the Institute, we have three things for you to do. 

      1. Look at the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner Crosswalk for your subject(s) and grade(s) and identify 5-8 learning outcomes that you believe should be addressed in the unit or assignment that you plan to work on during the Institute. For example, if you are preparing a research project for a 9th-grade English class, go to the English Language Arts page, and look at Grades 9 & 10. We encourage you to choose AASL standards that are linked to CCSS because the AASL standards are more research-related and also tend to be more specific. Bring your list of 5-8 learning outcomes with you to the Institute on the first day.

      2. Read “A Self-Directed Guide to Designing Courses for Significant Learning” by L. Dee Fink.  Fink’s Integrated Course Design will be the framework for our Institute’s curriculum, so we advise you to familiarize yourself with this model.

      3. Please complete this brief form regarding your experiences with designing and assessing research assignments.  This information will not be shared with other participants, but will be used by the facilitators to evaluate the Institute’s outcomes:

        • RAILS: Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills
          Project RAILS has developed several different rubrics that address various information literacy learning outcomes. Though these rubrics are largely geared toward college-level research, they can be adapted or serve as a starting point for middle or high school assessments.
