    • “This space is for teacher-librarians to share their lesson plans and otherwise collaborate with each other. This space has been set up to follow the chapter headings from “Information Literacy for Life-Long Learning,” the K-12 Library Scope and Sequence developed by the teacher-librarians of the Pittsburgh Public Schools (PA). (Please note that we begin here with Chapter 3, as chapters 1 & 2 do not require lesson plans.)”
