Giving students voice and choice is one of the leading trends in education these days. While the focus for the movement is usually on traditional classrooms, it presents many benefits for the school library.
Creating and implementing effective Socratic seminars is a multistep process that includes building a classroom community, instilling communication skills, and devising meaningful, reflective assessment protocols.
Schools with a strong school library program and a certified school librarian ensure their students have the best chance to succeed. More than 60 education and library research studies have produced clear evidence that school library programs staffed by qualified school librarians have a positive impact on student academic achievement. These studies clearly demonstrate that strong school library programs help all students do better academically, even when other school variables are considered. Students who don’t speak English at home can be among those who benefit the most.
The process of designing and implementing project-based learning can be fairly complex. A big part of that complexity is the shift toward inquiry that uncovers learning as you use PBL to flip Bloom’s Taxonomy. With that said, it’s often helpful to break this process down into basic steps to help teachers and schools get started with the caveat that PBL planning and implementation is not a simple, linear process. Readers should keep in mind that some of these “steps” can occur simultaneously as the reality of the messiness of learning and planning for deeper learning kicks in.
The information and resources on this site are designed to support inquiry projects of varying length. There are schedules for one and two week projects, half and full semester projects and Genius Hour projects. The accompanying resources are designed to be used throughout the project and have a strong foundation in Library research methodology. At the end of a project, not only will students have a product reflecting their learning, but the entire process will be documented. This website is in-progress and is being developed on an on-going basis.
