Currently I'm attending a Curriculum committee meeting for our institution. The Librarian has been mandated as a required member of all curriculum committees. However, there is no overall mandate for library content within supportive online syllabi. They recognize the importance of the role, but not the content. The challenge is gaining buy-in for information literacy as a required part of all Rubrics.

This week's mini-PBL from the PBL Project is about Labor Day. Students learn about the workers' rights movement and focus on how to put the meaning back into Labor Day. As always, all resources are linked, so you only have to print and go!

If you use breakout boxes as part of your lessons (or anything else), Breakout edu is giving their app to teachers for free until Friday as part of teacher appreciation week! It has 8 or so different locks that are on devices instead of the actual box. So it's more a virtual breakout, but certainly more affordable than the $99/box for the physical option! Here's the info I had to screenshot from FB!
