The Stanley A. Lotko Curriculum Lab in Elihu Burritt Library primarily serves students and faculty in the School of Education & Professional Studies thought it available to the entire CCSU community. It provides resources and materials to assist educators in curriculum planning, classroom planning and student assessment. The Curriculum Lab is located on the fourth floor of Burritt Library. Materials are available all hours that the library is open.
The dual focus of our collection of materials is to provide teachers with the resources to help plan curriculum and offer materials that replicate a good school library/ media center. By combining these two collections of materials in a laboratory setting, an area is provided where teachers may work individually or in groups to create curricula.
Print materials include Juvenile Picture Books, Juvenile & Young Person Fiction, Juvenile & Young person Non-Fiction, Professional reading, Reference, Textbooks and Educational Tests. Non-print materials include Aids & Games Slides, Audiotapes, CDs and Videos.
Staff develop bibliographies and create displays to showcase Curriculum Lab materials and to serve as an example for student teachers.
Assistance with find Curriculum lab materials can be found in the Curriculum Lab or at the Reference Desk.
