“There’s a whole lot of learning going on out there, but I’ve learned that it’s not all that easy to find. For the last few years I’ve tried to keep up with it myself and help my students and colleagues keep up as well. I decided it was time to pull it all together. Here’s a first go at an infographic collecting some of the major professional learning opportunities out there for school librarians. Please let me know what I missed and please feel free to embed and share with friends.”

Literacy: Every Student, Every Class, Every Day | | Librarians and literacy | Scoop.it

Jackson Central-Merry (JCM) Academy for Medical Technology, located in Jackson, TN, is an inner city, high-poverty (95%), and high-minority (93%) high school of approximately 800 students. Since being restructured four years ago, principal Eric Jones and the staff of JCM have created a safe, orderly, and inviting school environment that supports learning, encourages regular attendance, and promotes positive student behavior. A consistent focus on literacy has enabled JCM to increase student state test scores, improve the graduation rate from 54% to 91%, and produce a significant increase in ACT scores.

No scientific evidence to back these, but a few looked intriguing, and others looked cool to share with students.

Free Texts & Readings by Neil Himself

Free Texts & Readings by Neil Himself | Librarians and literacy | Scoop.it
Neil Gaiman might just be the most beloved fantasy author out there. He writes weird, twisted, exhilarating tales about hidden realities and the bizarre, fanciful creatures that live in them. His works, like Sandman, Fragile Things and American Gods, are pure escapism and a blast to read.

10 New Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers - Daily Genius ^ by Beth Holland

10 New Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers - Daily Genius ^ by Beth Holland | Librarians and literacy | Scoop.it
Several summers ago, I wrote 10 Ideas for Creating Literacy Centers in response to a request from a Summer Workshop participant. Over the past few weeks, this post has been re-circulated on Social Media, so I decided that it needed an update.

My original post was inspired by Suzy Brooks’ use of her SMART Board as a learning center. For this update, I would like to credit the fantastic work of Kristen Wideen and Meghan Zigmond. While many of the concepts from the original post are certainly still applicable, here are 10 new ideas for creating learning centers.
