These would be great to download and share with teachers. I love the graphics and I think kids might actually look at them and learn.

First education bill in decades acknowledges effective school library programs | ALA

The American Library Association would like to thank Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Jack Reed (D-RI) for their leadership in including strong provisions for effective school library programs in the Strengthening America’s Schools Act that was introduced on Tuesday. The bill is the first to recognize the role school library programs play in student learning since the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) was first enacted in 1965.

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution

Flip This Library: School Libraries Need a Revolution | Library | Scoop.it

What has to happen for school libraries to become relevant? If we want to connect with the latest generation of learners and teachers, we have to totally redesign the library from the vantage point of our users—our thinking has to do a 180-degree flip. In short, it’s time for school libraries to become a lot less like Microsoft and a lot more like Google. With this notion in mind, David Loertscher, collaborated with two colleagues, Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, Canadian educational consultants, to develop an idea called the school library learning commons.

A great read for those who have struggled with how to integrate math and library! 

Jennifer Callaway's curator insight, September 23, 2013 8:43 PM

I love this idea. I'd like to maybe gather a group of students who would work with me to create the data as a project. I would then make the math questions to be posted.
