Remember the QCC objective, somewhere in Language Arts, Reference/Study, that says, “Uses media center and available technology as sources of information and pleasure”?
That is no longer in the GPS curriculum in any way, shape, or form.
Yes!! Sweet freedom! We can lock the doors, read our magazines, and eat bon-bons! All we have to do now is convince the teachers that the 1,000,000-word reading goal can be met from their combined textbook selections.
Integrating the media center into the new curriculum may be harder than we have hitherto supposed.
