Three Essential Functions of Teacher–Librarians

  • Information and Technology Instruction
  • Reading Advocacy
  • Information Management and Services

NEW RESOURCE:  As you think about your goals and tasks for the close of this year and begin to think about the coming year, please consider how your district curriculum for Library-Information Literacy can support implementation of the Montana Content Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy and Mathematics. The new Library-Information Literacy Curriculum Guide correlates these standards, provides grade level essential learning expectations, and performance rubrics.  Through the lens of information literacy, the communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills that connect across the standards are clearly defined.  Please contact Colet Bartow, Library-Information Literacy Coordinator in the Content Standards and Instruction Division, with any questions about how to use this guide.
