The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) announced the launch of the “Standards for the 21st-Century Learner Lesson Plan Database,” a public, online database providing school librarians a fast and user-friendly way to create and share quality lesson plans with their peers.

Building on the template provided in “Standards for the 21st-Century Learner In Action,” the  Lesson Plan Database is an interactive resource and tool to support school librarians and other educators in teaching the essential learning skills defined in the AASL learning standards. The database serves as a catalyst for collaboration, as school librarians and teachers work together to create projects that weave content and skills into engaging learning activities.
