PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A set of 6 ready-made lesson plan templates designed expressly for K-5 elementary school librarians, teacher-librarians, and/or elementary school library media specialists.

These documents are NOT complete lesson plans on a given topic/subject! They are a customizable tool to create and/or modify your own lesson plans.

The National and Pennsylvania Common Core English Language Arts Standards, PA Academic Standards, and AASL Standards are already included in the templates. All you need to do as the teacher-librarian is delete the ones that don't apply to the lesson you are creating. Not all of the standards are included, just the ones that are most applicable to library and information literacy instruction.

Each lesson template is a 6- or 7-page Microsoft Word document that includes spaces for the following components:
Date
Lesson Title
Objectives
Big Ideas & Essential Questions
Standards
Assessments, including possible choices
Materials
Procedure
Reflection
Bibliography of Resources Used

A note about the preview file and thumbnails: They do not show the complete lesson plan template for 4th grade, only part of it, so that you can get an idea of the format and structure of the full product.

Updated 5/2013 - I added National Common Core Standards and Big Ideas & Essential Questions (as per Understanding by Design framework) from the new PA Library Model Curriculum. If you aren't familiar with the Model Curriculum, check it out at http://www.pdesas.org under the Curriculum tab.

Thanks! I know the templates may seem a bit intense and over-detailed to some, but I'm glad you like that.

Help- I only get the first 4 pages when I download the file. I don't see any place to unzip. I am on Windows 7.

Hi there! I'm sorry you're having trouble opening the file. I checked the preview and product files, and they seem to be all there.
You can try going to your "My Purchases" under the "My TpT" link. That will allow you to re-download the product and try re-opening it. You can also contact TpT using the "Help" link in the upper-right corner.

Just bought the templates and love having all the standards in one place so easy to see. I am loading my plans into the template, choosing my standards and uploading into my districts digital lesson planner that allows our principal to look at our lessons. I may have to double check the state/common core standards that are included the template but, to me, this is a real time saver!

I didn't realize they were just templates. I wouldn't have paid for them if I did. I thought you had lesson ideas for elementary library lessons.
On  June 26, 2013Mrs J in the Library answered:
I'm sorry this product didn't meet your expectations. I try to be as accurate as possible when I write the descriptions for my products. The product title and the second sentence in the description clearly state that these documents are templates, not ready-to-hand-in lesson plans.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to give refunds through my store, so I would recommend contacting TpT directly to discuss any refund request. If you are looking for elementary library lesson ideas to use with the lesson plan templates, I'd recommend downloading the FREE Library Information Literacy Curriculum from my store at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/District-Library-Information-Literacy-Curriculum-K-12-382463.

On  August 27, 2013,  Buyer asked:
What is the average length of these lessons? I have approximately 30 minutes for a lesson, check in/check out, and student questions.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 28, 2013Mrs J in the Library answered:
Great question! I use them to teach 40 minute classes, but the templates can be used for any length of time, including longer research projects.
Please note that these are templates, NOT complete, ready-to-hand-in lesson plans. My other instructional products do include complete lesson plans if the description says so.

(per prior message) I forgot to mention that I purchased this through my other account. Please let me know if you need any further info about that account. Also, I may have neglected to check the box for receiving an email when you respond, so if you could respond to this one, I'll be sure to be alerted. I look forward to hearing from you.

On  August 26, 2013Mrs J in the Library answered:
Hi there Library Safari!
You're correct that I didn't include the "dispositions," "responsibilities," and "self-assessment" in the lesson templates. The simple reason is that I think the "skills" part of the AASL standards is both the main focus of the standards, and the most measurable of the standards as far as assessment goes. Measuring a student's disposition, for example, is almost impossible without a lengthy interview. After considering your point, however, I've decided to add an additional standards document with the "missing" AASL standards. Watch for an update soon, or you can e-mail me at teacherlibrarian05 at yahoo.com with your TpT username that you used to purchase the templates. Once I verify your purchase, I can send you the extra file directly if you prefer. I hope that addresses your concern, and if not, please feel free to post another question or comment.

On  August 25, 2013,  Library S. asked:
First, let me say I love this template. But my version is missing many AASL standards. I'm hoping you can help me find them. Here's what's happening: I can see the AASL 1.1.1 - 1.1.9, but I can't see any of the 1.2's, 1.3's, or 1.4's. It's happening with every other major category too! I can see 2.1.1-2.1.6, but I can't see the 2.2's, 2.3's, or 2.4's. Same with the 3rd and 4th category. HELP, please!

Hi, Is this a Microsoft Word Document?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 13, 2013Mrs J in the Library answered:
Yes and no...the actual product you will download is a zip file that once "extracted," will contain all the files of the lesson plan templates and the Terms of Use/Teacher's Notes. Each template is a Microsoft Word doc file so that you can add your own content and probably taking out the standards you don't wish to use. It is COMPLETELY CUSTOMIZABLE with the understanding that the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial license does not allow you to re-sell the templates as is.
