Great lesson plans needed!



Brian Summers / First Light / Universal Images Group
The following letter is from a group seeking to collect library lesson plans from great teacher-librarians across the state. I know many of you have lessons that are worthy of inclusion. Please consider sharing your lessons with this group. See below for detail on how to submit your lesson plans.



Dear Texas School Librarian Community,

The AASL-TASL Learning4Life (L4L) Implementation Team is seeking your participation in the ELA-R TEKS and AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner Alignment Wiki.
We are soliciting exemplary lesson plans that can be linked to the wiki to provide examples for Texas school librarians.

This is how you can contribute.

1.    Review the Sample Lesson Plans at: http://teksalign.pbworks.com/w/page/56248115/Lesson_Plan_Samples
2.    Download the Word document linked to the Lesson Plan Template page: http://teksalign.pbworks.com/w/page/56247028/Lesson_Plan_Template
3.    Determine ONE ELA-R TEKS with which to align your lesson.
4.    Identify AASL standards indicators (up to three) that align with the ELA-R TEKS.
5.    Complete all sections of the template.
6.    Teach or coteach the lesson.
7.    Make modifications.
8.    Self-assess your lesson using the criteria on the Peer Review Recommendation Form: http://teksalign.pbworks.com/w/page/56483425/Peer_Review_Recommendation_Form
9.    Submit your lesson plan for peer review to: jmoreillon@twu.edu

The peer review and publication process:
1.    Two members of the Peer-Review Committee will review your plan.
2.    You will receive feedback from both reviewers as well as the decision of the committee within three weeks.
3.    If the committee accepts your lesson plan, you will receive a permission form to sign.
4.    Your plan will be linked to the ELA-R TEKS and AASL Standards for the 21st-Century Learner Alignment Wiki.
5.    Members of the peer review committee will publicize the publication of your lesson plan.
6.    You will receive a badge to place on your Web presence or to add to your portfolio.


If you have questions, please contact Judi Moreillon or Suzanne Lyons:
•    jmoreillon@twu.edu
•    slyons1@houstonisd.org

We look forward to your lesson plan submissions, which will contribute to the on-going professional development of Texas school librarians.

Sincerely,
Judi Moreillon and Suzanne Lyons, on behalf of the Texas L4L Lesson Plan Peer Review Committee
