Standards for Grades 6-12
Request for Public Comment
The Core Standards for Library Media have been under review and revision throughout the 2013-14 school year. On May 9, the Utah State Board of Education approved the revised Standards for public comment. This public comment period will last for 90 days, from May 19, 2014 until August 17, 2014. After the comments are reviewed, the comments will be summarized, appropriate changes made, and a presentation made to the Board.
The Standards are organized in three Strands:
I. Research and Information Literacy
II. Reading Engagement
III. Media Literacy
Each strand includes student indicators and demonstrates the integration of these Standards with the Utah Core Standards for English/Language Arts, the Utah Core Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, the AASL Standards for the 21st–Century Learner, and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Students. These connections were made to clearly convey the critical role of these Standards in preparing students to be literate members of society who are able to find, evaluate, and use information appropriately throughout their academic, professional, and personal lives.
