    Hello. The other day I had an interview question related to Common Core. It was along the lines of, how would you implement Common Core into the media center? Or about how Common Core effects the library. I am not 100 percent sure. How would you answer that question? Thanks!

    Well I know how I would answer it in art based on the research I have done. In fact I include Common Core standards in all of my art lesson plans. So I would suggest doing some independent research since I don't know how it would effect you :)

    TeachinginFL...have you looked at the Common Core standards? Seems that many of the reading standards would affect library/media lessons, activities and available resources.

    If you're teaching classes (part of the related arts classes or what have you), you'll likely be pulling from Common Core in addition to the ALA's Stadards for the 21st Century Learner. No matter what, though, you'll need to maintain your collection to have plenty of materials to support Common Core topics. Technology may fall on you as well.

    Providing more non-fiction text in the primary grades will be pertinent!

    I'm slowly moving away from using my language arts anthology to teach reading. Yes--the phonics/spelling sections are great, but some of the stories in the anthology are bogus. This year (more than ever, in fact), I've relied heavily on my social studies and science curricula!
