As an elementary SLMC this is great lesson that can be used with students. It has full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content. While no mention of a SLMC is included collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added. Strengths of this resource include the use of comparing and contrasting characters and group collaboration. A SLMC can help extend this project by assisting the teacher with locating and or using a technology resource for student presentation.

As a SLMC, I noted the following:
*Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content
*Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added
*Strengths: Incorporation of stories and characters makes it more engaging for students. Lots of opportunity for student collaboration and evaluation.
*Opportunities: There could be more alternatives for assessment of understanding that may be more immediate and high interest for students. Technology integration could help with assessment of understanding especially with provided prompts and discussion starters.

I'm a K-5 SLMC
*Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content
*Collaboration between SLMC & teachers can be added
*Strengths: Excellent way to use fables to study characters. Student interaction keeps engagement high. Comes with many resources for implementation.
*Opportunities: Could portray character in another story or setting. How would that possibly change the character?

I'm a K-12 SLMC reviewing this resource: Detailed lesson plan that is organized and easy to implement in the classroom. Full integration of one or more information literacy strategies with subject content. The lesson can easily be a collaboration between SLMC and teachers to implement the ELA standards. Strength: Students are provided the opportunity to reflect and share ideas throughout this lesson plan with partners. An anchor chart is provided and the stories shared are King Lion and the Beetle/Lobster and the Crab by Arnold Lobel.
