Helping the Reluctant Reader

Helping the Reluctant Reader | Reading for Children | Scoop.it
Students in the age of digital screens often face significant reading challenges. A library’s large print collection can be instrumental in helping them change their habits for the better.

This is a must-read for school librarians of any grade level. The suggestion - provide large print books - is so simple that I'm sure it is one that is largely (no pun intended) overlooked. I have long believed that the distraction of the digital "page" is a detriment to emerging readers and, according to this article, my suspicions have been borne out by research. The author notes that "for long-form content, brain researchers and a 2014 survey study indicate that those who read printed books have better content retention and empathy levels than those who do so on a screen." This is important information when collaborating with your early grade teachers, of course, but also when you're trying to reach those middle and high school non-readers. The article includes links to resources for further reading - read it.

If you are not sure what a Future Ready library is or what it looks like, this is an excellent article to get you started. Stony Evans breaks down the principles of the Future Ready framework and gives examples of what it could look like in your library. He also talks about OER (open educational resources) and how that fits into the school library ecosystem. Check this one out!

This article gives a step-by-step accounting of how a group of librarians reached their goal of accessing the data - and then crunching the numbers - to give data-driven proof that their programs were impacting student achievement. Like it or not, we live in an age of big data and if you have the numbers to back up your claims you will get more respect. Don't sit back wringing your hands if you don't have access to the data numbers you need to follow these Nebraska librarians' path! Someone in your school has access - get their help! Go to that math teacher in your school that will help you run the numbers for valuable results. Don't complain that your admin doesn't know how you impact students if you aren't willing to go the extra mile to prove it in terms that they understand. Speak THEIR language and they will hear you! Enjoy!

This is a fantastic article for anyone thinking about the whole personalized learning idea. I don't think it is a passing fad but a real shift in what we're doing in schools to support the children we now teach. When I read the part about learning becoming "noisier" I thought about how libraries have changed since I started my career back in the 90s. Yes! They are a LOT noisier than they were back then because there are a LOT more voices to be heard. There is knowledge being created rather than just imparted & absorbed. If we want to remain relevant we have to think about not only WHAT we are teaching but HOW we are teaching - that just may lead us to answer WHY we are teaching...
