Creating Stronger Student Outcomes through Collaboration and Assessment
With decreased funding occurring in secondary and higher education, providing relevant and meaningful cross-curricular connections can be challenging. This presentation first highlights national trends, and then shifts to a pilot project in an East Baltimore inner-city high school. This case study demonstrates how some of these challenges were addressed through a collaboration of an academic librarian and a public school teacher. Participants in this session will take away a checklist of key considerations when undertaking similar collaborative projects and a sample of how information and digital literacy standards map to the curriculum.
