Library Outcomes & Goals

K-5 Library Scope & Sequence


  1. To provide a combination of resources, curriculum, and activities so that students will be able to locate, evaluate and use information and ideas from a variety of print and non-print sources.
  2. To help students develop the habit and enjoyment of reading and learning throughout their lives.

We achieve this through:

  • Weekly classes for all students, plus on-demand research assistance, and reader's advisory for students, teachers and parents
  • Projects and units that are co-planned to support classroom curriculum
  • Print and non-print materials that are selected to support grade level curricula, the Alcott Core values, and a variety of reading interests and abilities
  • Materials and learning activities that are selected to represent the rich diversity of experiences, opinions and perspectives in our world
  • All library lessons are aligned with Common Core, Mass DESE, AASL, MSLA and local standards.
