Update 9/22/2014: “AASL has received word that the organization that hosts and provides technical support for the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner Lesson Plan Database has refocused their mission and will no longer be providing these services. As such, the lesson plan database will be archived and future plans are currently under consideration” (AASL Lesson Plan Database).
Whether you are looking for a lesson plan on digital citizenship or wanting to share the snazzy lesson plan you created on screen-casting, there is now a place to do so. After all, why should every school media specialist re-invent the wheel, right?
AASL gets credit for creating this database, and contributors get credit for what is in it! This lesson plan database is meant to support school media specialists and other educators too as they teach essential learning skills within the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner.
You can do free searches by standards and indicators, content topic, grade level, type of lesson or schedule, and of course keyword too. Registered users can bookmark lesson plans, rate and comment on content, print to PDF and socially share content too. Again, it is free.
Submissions to the Lesson Plan Database are vetted by AASL reviewers to ensure lesson plans published are of the highest quality. The lesson plan template was developed using the Action Example Template from Standards for the 21st-Century Learner in Action. All lesson plans published are aligned with AASL’s Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and are crosswalked with the Common Core Standards.
