“You’re never alone if you have a good book. A good story, fiction or nonfiction, can open up the imagination for problem solving and critical thinking, or just for working through the tough spots in life. A truly good story sucks you in, and opens up a whole new world.”

Recess Queen – Full of STEAM! @MisFitz333 @MrsBoston1

Recess Queen – Full of STEAM! @MisFitz333  @MrsBoston1 | Learning  and Libraries: practice and possibilties | Scoop.it
Alright – let’s dive right in! When we first got started, the only knowledge we had of utilizing a STEAM station in the classroom, was what we read.  We were a bit nervous at first because the task seemed daunting and oh…we had ZERO space for all of the things we thought we needed! What we discovered, however, was that the setup was much easier than we had anticipated. We each chose a corner in our classrooms devoted to creating. Laura’s was called “Tinker Town” and Jess called hers “Imagination Station.” We filled it with things we already had in the classroom.  We basically searched for easily manipulated recyclable items to put in bins (ie. q-tips, cotton balls, yarn, pipe cleaners, paper towel rolls, cardboard, tape, etc.)  Our STEAM stations became the perfect place to house those extra odds and ends we always saved in our closets because we would “need it someday.”



We knew we wanted the creating to be authentic, so we decided that each STEAM activity would connect to a piece of literature. We started simple.

#Fake #News, #Alternative #Facts and #Librarians As Dedicated Defenders of #Truth @jenniferlagarde

#Fake #News, #Alternative #Facts and #Librarians As Dedicated Defenders of #Truth @jenniferlagarde | Learning  and Libraries: practice and possibilties | Scoop.it

"Let's be clear, there's no such thing as "alternative facts."

The same fact can be used by different people to support alternative opinions, but the facts don't change. Different people can use the same facts to emphasize alternative ideas or to inform different theories, but the facts remain the same. Facts are non-partisan. Facts alone are neutral. It's what we do with them that becomes controversial.

That said, there's a not so old saying that goes "we are drowning in information, but starving for knowledge." (Note: the fact that this saying is attributed to at least 5 different people when I do a quick search for the author is an irony that has not escaped me, but I digress). These days, getting answers to your questions is just about the easiest thing in the world. Getting the right answer is more challenging. Librarians (and Neil Gaiman) have known this for years, but one thing is certain, in the information age, discerning fact from fiction is THE "21st century skill."

Teaching Why Facts Still Matter @Edutopia

Teaching Why Facts Still Matter @Edutopia | Learning  and Libraries: practice and possibilties | Scoop.it

“You may think you are prepared for a post-truth world, in which political appeals to emotion count for more than statements of verifiable fact,” writes Margaret Sullivan, media columnist for The Washington Post. “But now it’s time to cross another bridge—into a world without facts. Or, more precisely, where facts do not matter a whit.”

Because I teach American history, government, and journalism in high school, Sullivan’s words hit close to home. I spoke with my students about Mary Beth Hertz’s Edutopia post “Battling Fake News in the Classroom,” and I sensed that many of my students, while skilled at what Hertz fittingly calls “crap detection,” were still deeply troubled by what they characterized as a growing public aversion to the truth.

When politicians and thought leaders can’t or won’t agree on a basic set of facts, how can we motivate students for the noble pursuit of truth and help them see why it still matters?  "

Very few states or provinces in the US, Canada and Australia still have this kind of active partnership between the teachers' union and the school library professional association. But this case study shows how difficult even teacher unions find it to advocate for school library positions in schools. Although, one advantage of union support is the union's access to school-based data on staffing etc. Well worth a read if you are fortunate to be working in an education system with teacher union support.
