Follett Creativity Award
The purpose of this award is to recognize an outstanding creative instructional lesson that integrates subject content with school library learning standards and technology. Creativity is demonstrated in the instructional strategy or the task assigned to students.
A winning lesson will demonstrate a connection between the “Standards for the 21st Century Learner” and content area curriculum standards. The national standards help advance school library programs in meeting the needs of "Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs”.
Students will use resources and tools to:
Inquire, think critically, and gain knowledge;
Draw conclusions, make informed decision, apply knowledge to new situations, and create new knowledge;
Share knowledge and participate ethically and productively as members of our democratic society; and
Pursue personal and aesthetic growth.
The winner will receive the Follett Creativity Award in the amount of $500. The recipient of this award will be expected to present a visual display that documents the project at the Annual CASL Conference.
Applications will open in early 2019.
