How are AASL's new learning standards, the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, incorporated into the school library program? This publication from AASL takes an in-depth look at the strands of the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and the indicators within those strands. It also answers such critical questions as How do the strands—the skills, dispositions in action, responsibilities, and self-assessment strategies—relate to one another? 

Benchmarks are provided along with examples that show how to put the learning standards into action. This is a practical book with examples of how to maximize the application of the learning standards at different grade levels. The colorful pages are full of graphics and charts that make for easy reference. A glossary is also provided to define key concepts found throughout the book. 

This sound, practical book is guaranteed to aid school librarians and other educators in bringing 21st-century skills into the heart of the learning process.
