Comparing Dewey and the Library of Congress: In What "Class" Are Your "Classes"?

Knowing both the Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress Classification systems, and how to read their call numbers, facilitates information literacy, a critical skill for 21st century life. High schoolers, who may be familiar with Dewey, learn to navigate the LCC system, compare the two in a Venn diagram, and create call numbers for books and subjects in their class schedules.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
