Scott Walter says Nettelhorst students are still able to check out books, because the clerk and parent volunteers help staff the library. Still, he says, it's a lose-lose.

"It feels [like] CPS [Chicago Public Schools] has set us up into a situation where we have to decide which finger we don't want," he says.

School officials wouldn't go on tape for this story. In a fact sheet sent to WBEZ, they touted the district's expanded virtual libraries available to all students. A spokesperson wrote, "we will not be satisfied until we have central and/or classroom-based libraries in every school."

Problem-based learning | Elements | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

PBL is a learning-centered pedagogy based on current theories of learning including constructivism, social constructivism and situated cognition. In PBL classrooms, students are presented with complex, realistic problems that have been carefully crafted to address course goals and objectives. Students work in groups, under the mentoring of a facilitator, to solve the problem. As they solve the problem, students learn group skills, problem-solving techniques, investigative techniques, disciplinary content, and begin to think like experts in the field.
