The description:
The most recent draft of the  Common Core Standards were released in March 2010 for public review and comment. This webinar will provide background on the development of these standards. A final version is scheduled to be released in early Spring 2010. Our guests will give us several perspectives on what impact these standards will have on K-12 education and school libraries. Join us to articulate comments for the final version and to explore the potential role of the school librarian.
