140+ Books for the Boys of YA

140+ Books for the Boys of YA | Library Trends in Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
140 books that we think will speak to the boys of YA. They're full of adventure, magic, real-world issues, and romance. Some of them are even written by - *gasp* - women. They give us all kinds of male figures: strong, brave, struggling, emotional, confused, and yes - even a few great role models. Most of all, they give us great stories for any reader -- almost all of these books appeal to us as adult women even though we are probably not the target audience from a marketing perspective. That being said, while we do think that there will always be outlier readers who feel comfortable reading anything and everything (and we love them for it), we also realize that it might be a struggle to hand-sell a book with a girl in a dress on the cover or a romance-driven plot to the "average" boy. We'd love to think of this list as a tool for educators, librarians, parents, and teens to find a great read for the boys in their lives, but anyone who enjoys a great story will find something in this wall of books."

Letting Go of Boolean Operators: Rethinking How Research Is Taught in Schools | ALA TechSource

Letting Go of Boolean Operators: Rethinking How Research Is Taught in Schools | ALA TechSource | Library Trends in Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

"I am constantly struggling with the sense that I’m doing a lot of talking for nothing. I painstakingly teach kids how to use a database and they go straight back to Wikipedia as soon as I turn them loose. I show them how to use keywords and operators and they always fall back on their “ask Google a question” method."

Some worthwhile things to consider in teaching information searching!

Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog - “Open Classrooms” are a reflection of the dedication and forward-thinking of the leadership at the American School of Bombay to support 21st century skills and personalized differentiated learning. Each learning space or pod now has movable walls -- open environment of learning! Simultaneously, the conventional centralized library was replaced by multiple interactive libraries called  iCommons (Information Commons).

Integration of Information Literacy into the Curriculum: Changing Students’ Relationships with the School Librarian

Integration of Information Literacy into the Curriculum: Changing Students’ Relationships with the School Librarian | Library Trends in Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

Motivated by a shared inquiry question, a team of librarians at Deerfield High School (Illinois) gathered data to support a push to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum, and developed a fruitful collaboration with other departments resulting in a co-taught Medieval narrative project. Among other important outcomes: a change in student perceptions about the role of school librarians.

Younger Americans’ Reading and Library Habits

Younger Americans’ Reading and Library Habits | Library Trends in Secondary Schools | Scoop.it
More than eight in ten Americans ages 16-29 read a book in the past year, and six in ten used their local public library. Many say they are reading more in the era of digital content, especially on their mobile phones and on computers.

This report by the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project examines how readers (age 16 - 29) "encounter and consumer books in different formats." There are many findings in this report and three are listed below (quoted):

* 83% of American between the ages of 16 and 29 read a book in the past year. Some 75% read a print book, 19% read an e-book, and 11% listened to an audio book.

* Many of these young readers do not know they can borrow an e-book from a library, and a majority of them express the wish they could do so on pre-loaded e-readers.

* High schoolers (age 16 -17) are especially reliant on their library for their reading and research needs...College age-adults (ages 18 - 24) show interesting shifts in their reading habits compared with high schoolers. They have the highest overall reading rate of any age group...Adults in their late twenties (ages 25 - 29) exhibit different patterns when compared with younger age groups.

Many more facts on reading habits, how e-content affects reading habits, and other areas related to reading are also covered.

David Villalobos's curator insight, February 5, 11:59 PM

After reading this article I noticed myself thinking about whether or not i actually use my local library and for what reasons. I came to the conclusion that unlike people my own age (17) I didn't use the library all that much, even when I was 16. And if I ever did do research papers I usually used online resources rather than e-book or print. On the other hand, while i'm currently college I do notice more of an urge to want to go check out books and read more for pleasure rather than research. This proves true especially since I have two art books and a fictional novel checked out from my school's library.

Reaching Reluctant and Struggling Readers | Library Trends in Secondary Schools | Scoop.it

"I realize that different teachers will have different styles and also may be somewhat limited in what their schools will allow them to do. Given that, here are some things that worked for me in my classroom full of 13 to 19 year-old struggling and reluctant readers over a period of 15 years. Most of my students were boys."
