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 5-10 learning 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 5-10 learning outcomes with you to the Institute on the first day.
2. Read the Project Information Literacy report “How Freshmen Conduct Course Research Once They Enter College” by Alison J Head (48 pages). The researchers did a comparative analysis of library resources in 30 US high schools and 6 college and university libraries; they also surveyed 1,941 US high school and college students. This will give us a great deal to talk about regarding articulation issues and the transition from high school to college.
3. Watch a TED Talk about collaboration: “Where Good Ideas Come From” by Steven Johnson (18 minutes). We hope you are inspired by his theory that “An Idea is a Network” and this will prepare us to work effectively as teams.
