The guide addresses three roles that information literacy plays in teacher education:
Knowledge practices and dispositions are included to support social justice, technology, and reflection. Social justice is a part of the ALA Code of Ethics, Principle 9 and also an Equity Diversity and Inclusion/ACRL Plan of Excellence. In this companion document to the ACRL Framework, social justice knowledge practices and dispositions are articulated in the numerous ways that they play out in information literacy practices for teachers.
Learning outcomes and teaching activities are also part of the Companion Document. In this section, three sample objectives are provided for each frame. These do not represent all possible or recommended objectives for the frame, but provide an example of the types of objectives that may be relevant for teacher education students. This section includes information on how the objective is related to the frame, to the field of teacher education, and to teacher education standards (InTASC and ISTE). For each objective, one sample activity/lesson is provided. Links to the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy Sandbox and the Community of Online Research Assignments are also provided, as a means to find additional activities and objectives.
Resources include articles about the ACRL Framework, information literacy, and those that offer connections to knowledge practices and dispositions in specific Frames, as they relate to teacher education.
