I became interested in how deeply “library skills” were embedded in literacy standards after reading “Library Skills” = Information Literacy Skills = Common Core Skills by Sara Kelly Johns in the March 23rd post on School Library Journal’s Make Some Noise Blog. Sara did a “find” search of the word “research” in the “College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing,” which showed 56 results. I took it a step further with a word count analysis of Colorado K-12 Reading, Writing and Communicating Standards. It shows that the skills, lessons and tools provided by School Librarians are embedded in 21st Century Literacy. School Librarians TEACH 21st Century Skills!
