Sample Big6 Onsite Workshop 

This Big6 Professional Development Workshop is designed to introduce classroom teachers, teacher librarians, technology specialists and administrators to concepts and strategies that will help them meet their curriculum related responsibilities.

Curriculum includes the objectives of instruction and the scope and sequence of content. Curriculum relates to the specifics of what is taught, in what order the topics are presented, with what methods and materials the topics are introduced, and how student learning is evaluated.

The school library & information technology program is directly related to the school curriculum. The Big6 Workshop is designed to identify, explain, and evaluate the curriculum related functions of the school library media program.
