Even as the decline of the reading of literature, as argued by the National Endowment for the Arts, proceeds in our culture, Garber (“One of the most powerful women in the academic world”—The New York Times) gives us a deep and engaging meditation on the usefulness and uselessness of literature in the digital age. What is literature, anyway? How has it been understood over time, and what is its relevance for us today? Who are its gatekeepers? Is its canonicity fixed? Why has literature been on the defensive since Plato? Does it have any use at all, or does

WE DO NOT USE THE WORD MUST LIGHTLY: THE STAKES OF PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY WORLD HAVE NEVER BEEN GREATER. One of the most common concerns teacher-librarians have shared with us across the country is the lack of understanding their administrators and their colleagues have about what is possible "if only" they were given the opportunity, the resources, and the support. Contrary to what some may believe, the lack of opportunity, resources, and support are not a personal attack nor is it a show of disrespect. The crux of the problem is that most administrators and staff fundamentally do not understand what is possible (despite many valiant efforts by teacher-librarians to explain it).

39 Digital Textbooks in Florida: Extending the Teacher-Librarians' Reach (Feature Article) (Essay) - Teacher Librarian
Auteur : Teacher Librarian
Genre : Éducation
Despite a projected decline Din enrollment, Florida spent $22,155,066,891 on instructional materials for its public schools, making it the fourth highest spender behind California, Texas, and New York (Market Data Retrieval [MDR], 2009). Currently, in many districts across the state, students and teachers access digital versions of their current textbooks (Surdin, 2009). With the passing of Florida legislation allowing school districts to use textbook funds to purchase digital content and other online educational resources (Manzo, 2009), the nation will increasingly look to Florida to take the lead in the process of digital textbook adoption (Mardis, et. al., 2010).

40 Culturally Responsive Instruction for Teacher-Librarians (Feature ARTICLE) - Teacher Librarian
Auteur : Teacher Librarian
Genre : Éducation
EVERYDAY IN MANY OF OUR SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY, TEACHER-LIBRARIANS WORK WITH STUDENTS FROM A RANGE OF CULTURES/ETHNICITIES AND WITH VARIED ABILITIES, AS PART OF THEIR WORK, TEACHER-LIBRARIANS ARE CHARGED WITH MEETING THE LITERACY NEEDS OF EACH OF THESE STUDENTS ON THEIR LEARNING JOURNEY. Over the past ten years, as I have networked with teacher-librarians in schools and at conferences, attended lectures and presentations, as well as reviewed articles written on the topic, it is clear that as professionals, teacher-librarians have become more responsive to the needs of these students. Indeed, teacher-librarians have recognized the importance of providing access, representative collections, and programming targeted to students from the various cultural groups.

Approximately 35% of North American children in the fourth grade have some type of reading difficulty (Allington, 2002; Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, 2001), and an estimated 10% to 18% of elementary school children "are likely to have serious deficiencies in their ability to use literacy in everyday activities" (Human Resources and Social Development Canada, 2004, para. 2). Research also finds that children who enter school with reading difficulties rarely catch up to their peers (Lyon, 2003; Snow, Burns, & Griffin, 1998). Additionally, Juel (1988) found that 88% of children exhibiting reading difficulties in grade 1 continued to have such problems into grade 4 and beyond. Fortunately, reading research (Allington, 2002,) indicates that early intervention and long-term programs of balanced reading instruction-development of phonemic awareness, comprehension st

43 Issues and Trends in Intellectual Freedom for Teacher Librarians: Where We've Come from and Where We're Heading (Feature Article) (Essay) - Teacher Librarian

"The more things change, the more they stay the same." What comes to mind when you hear that phrase? Does it conjure a sense of defeat, of being stuck in the mud and spinning your wheels? Do you picture some poor, hapless soul throwing up her hands with a sigh of resigned frustration? Certainly we have all found ourselves in that very scenario, feeling mired in bureaucracy and powerless to alter the course of "how we've always done things."

44 Joining the Conversation: School Librarians As Facilitators of Learning (Feature ARTICLE) - Teacher Librarian
Auteur : Teacher Librarian
Genre : Éducation
In October of 2010 Joyce Valenza posted a very powerful manifesto for 21st-century school librarians. (1) It lists a variety of cutting-edge practices and principles to enhance learning and service to young adults. It begins with a question asked by another school librarian: "In the 21st century, what does a school librarian do?" It is a question that is being asked across library types. Public librarians are trying to come to terms with their role in tough economic times. Academic librarians are wrestling with the migration to an overwhelmingly digital collection. Medical librarians are trying to understand what it is to be embedded within medical teams. Throughout the field, people are asking, "What does a librarian do?"

45 Perceptions of School Library Programs and School Librarians: Perspectives of Supportive School Administrators (Feature ARTICLE) - Teacher Librarian
Auteur : Teacher Librarian
Genre : Éducation
School librarians, whether experienced or new to the job, realize how important the principal is to the success of their library program. Unfortunately, school principals often have a limited understanding or appreciation of the school librarian's role. Hartzell (2002) hypothesizes that this is the result of the "occupational invisibility" of school librarians and the fact that administrators' professional preparation and socialization do not expose them to the positive aspects of school library programs and their potential to impact student achievement. Little attention is given to the role of the school librarian or the school library program in administrator preparation programs and in the journals read by most school administrators (Hartzell, 2002; Kaplan, 2006; Wilson and McNeil, 1998).

As a profession, librarians have gone on the defensive, justifying in increasingly worried and frantic tones, just why they and their institutions are ever so much better than the Internet. Mark Herring's article "10 Reasons why the Internet is no substitute for a library" (Herring, 2001) and even a column of mine, "Why do we need libraries when we have the Internet?" (Johnson, 1998) are examples of this concern about our physical resources, space and even profession being replaced by Google and its virtual ilk.

"I love this! Can we stay in the library all day?" A fifth-grade student at Marsh Elementary School in Chicago recently expressed this comment to librarian Diane Papageorge. While in the library, the student's class had been researching details about various animals. Rather than produce another research paper, Ms. Papageorge instructed her students to create digital stories using VoiceThread. Students clearly found the technology platform highly engaging.

Take, for example, an unnamed Missouri school. Here's the scene: My classroom presentation is invaded by a TV cameraman and a drop-dead-gorgeous Miss Missouri, popping in to interview a girl about a horse show. The teacher says not o word when the burnishing lights flash on and the mic pokes into the fifth graders face. Every kid in the class scrapes his or her desk across the room to watch, and it's smack in the middle of my writing workshop. What's an author to do?

Auteur : Teacher Librarian

Alerting all teacher-librarians: There is a new set of standards in town! Released in 2008 and planned to be in the hands of all teacher-librarians by 2012, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has created new Standards for the 21st-Century Learner and Learning 4 Life (L4L), a national plan for implementation. As part of the 2010 class of the American Library Association's (ALA) Emerging Leaders, we undertook the task of connecting relevant web sites to each of the four new standards. These web sites would then be used by pre-service, new, or returning school library media specialists to use in developing implementation strategies and support the AASL's new Best Websites for Teaching and Learning list (http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/aasl/ guidelinesandstandards/bestlist/bestwebsitestop25.cfm).

Take away my tacky button-covered apron, box of crazy hats, assortment of conference badge holders, my Sharpie markers, sidewalk chalk, roll of cellophane, or our portable easel and you will put a huge dent in our library's publicity toolbox. Our library is a functional and bright space that can and does welcome guests all day every day, but connecting outside our four walls makes our library program an integral part of our entire school community. Thanks to significant outreach, our program benefits from an array of partnerships and connections.
