Karen Bonanno's curator insight, May 15, 2014 3:40 AM

An example of a school board expecting an aide to deliver a reading program and provide "non-certified" instruction. What does that really mean? Bravo to the parents who tried to stop this action in their school district. Employ an aide and a certified teacher librarian to deliver a quality education and library service to the whole school community and stop using limited funds as the reason for why you need to cut back on this important component of the modern learning environment of every child.

7 Teaching Strategies for Building Anticipation

7 Teaching Strategies for Building Anticipation | Library-related | Scoop.it
So often I walk into a classroom and announce, “Today we’ll be learning about ____________.” I fill in the blank with the teaching strategies for the day, and then I dive headlong into the lesson itself. When I start that way, students have no time to adjust themselves to the learning we’ll engage in that hour and have not had their background knowledge activated. One easy way to get students engaged in the lessons and primed for learning is to use what’s called an “Anticipatory set.” This essential teaching term is, according to teacher Jennifer Gonzalez, “A brief portion of a lesson given at the very beginning to get students’ attention, activate prior knowledge, and prepare them for the day’s learning. Also known as advance organizer, hook, or set induction.” It’s important that teachers take a few moments to carefully consider those opening moments of class to use teaching strategies that will help students become curious rather than bored, engaged rather than resistant. Here are a few teaching strategies for anticipatory sets that you might find worthwhile to try.

Evaluating Websites as Information Sources

Evaluating Websites as Information Sources | Library-related | Scoop.it
Studies suggest that many U.S. students are too trusting of information found on the internet and rarely evaluate the credibility of a website’s information. For example, a survey found that only 4 percent of middle school students reported checking the accuracy of information found on the web at school, and even fewer did so at home (New Literacies Research Team & Internet Reading Research Group, 2006).
