Are Librarians Still Important? |

Are Librarians Still Important? | | Lifelong learner | Scoop.it

"The link between strong school library programs and student achievement is well documented. Today's librarian is less a stern guardian of the collection and more like a curator, eager to share resources she has found and the skills it takes to distinguish good information from bad. "As certified librarians with a master's degree, our focus is on teaching our students," says Young. "If a principal understands that, that's a huge hurdle [overcome] right there."

Great Books for Boys | Kidsreads

Great Books for Boys | Kidsreads | Lifelong learner | Scoop.it

"Founder Carol Fitzgerald frequently has been told by mothers how difficult it is to get their sons to read. Some are busy participating in sports and other extracurricular activities, watching television, playing video games and surfing the Internet, while others simply don't like to read, no matter how much free time they may have.

This inspired her to enlist her son Cory, an avid reader, to compile a list of books that he thinks are great reads for boys. Included are series titles and stand-alone fiction that cover a variety of genres: fantasies, mysteries, thrillers, action/adventure novels and historical fiction. While many of these selections also will appeal to girls, they especially will capture the attention of boys, who often are much more reluctant readers."

Now available: Suggested texts for the English K-10 Syllabus | Lifelong learner | Scoop.it

Chief Executive of the Board of Studies, Carol Taylor, recently visited Russell Lea Infants School, Five Dock to launch the Suggested texts for the English K­–10 Syllabus. In developing the list of texts, the need to provide teachers with a range of choice was an important consideration. The result is a variety of genres, perspectives and themes with good representation of Australian and international authors, the classics, poetry and plays as well as films, picture books, graphic novels, media and multimedia texts.
