Solid Anchor Points

pillarsWhen I think about creating lessons plans, be they for information literacy or any other subject, I like to have models and/or standards as points of reference for creating, assessing, and reviewing my lesson plans. A few models and standards that I find very helpful in creating lesson plans include the ADDIE model, which can be used as a general model for approaching teaching tasks. This model involves four stages, which overlap with ongoing formative evaluations, and a final summative evaluation. The four stages are

  •  Analysis
  •  Design
  •  Development
  •  Implementation

The standards set forth by the American Association of School Librarians’ Standards for the 21st Century Learner, which include the ability for students to learn to

  •  Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge
  •  Draw conclusions, make informed decisions, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge
  • Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society
  •  Pursue personal and aesthetic growth

And the CARP Design Principles, which help to adhere to the aim of good design principles in the creation of lesson plans. The four principles are

  •  Contrast
  •  Alignment
  •  Repetition
  •  Proximity
