The Library Den project was developed by Sirius Thinking, Ltd., in collaboration with:
WGBH Educational Foundation
Family Place Libraries
Libraries for the Future
Funding for the Library Den research and development project was provided by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (a component of NIH).
This video from Sirius Thinking, Ltd. presents interviews with parents and kids about their experiences in the Middle Country (Long Island, NY) Public Library’s Between the Lions Reading Den. The families explain how they value the literacy resources available in the Den — a library-based environment that encourages parents and kids to watch BTL episodes together (at home and in the library), to read the books featured on those episodes, and to participate in activities based on the shows and books.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
