Navigating the Information Tsunami: Engaging Research Projects that Meet the Common Core Standards, K-5

Cherry Lake Publishing has a new and exciting book coming out called, Navigating the Information Tsunami:  Engaging Research Projects that Meet the Common Core Standards, K-5.  This text offers 18 projects, three from each grade level K-5, that go well-beyond fact recall.  These lessons are all grounded in the new Common Core Standards and focus on quality student research from our earliest learners to our older elementary students.  Each lesson is written by an educator who is an expert on the many literacies involved in research projects, the school teacher-librarian.  While the  lessons are written for classroom teachers, they all incorporate collaboration with the school librarian at some point during the project.  Also within the pages of the book, there are many graphic organizers and tips on topics such as citing sources in a multimedia world, creative commons images, what to do when Youtube is blocked, and more.  I encourage every elementary library to own at least one copy of this book.  I have a featured 1st grade project about the 4 seasons and fellow school librarian, Linda Martin, from Hall County has a featured 1st grade project about animals.  Check out the attached flyer and order your copy today!

    Thanks for the reminder about this book! I heard about it from Linda Martin at a Digital Storytelling Workshop I attended at Ga. Tech. It doesn’t look like the book is available yet–I just went on the Cherry Lake website and couldn’t find it. I definitely want to get it!

    Hope to see you at the GLMA Summer Institute this week! 🙂

      I’m not sure of the exact release date. It should be very soon because they wanted it out by ALA. I won’t be at GLMA because we just had our 2nd child.
