A Week of Making: What Making is Really About

A Week of Making: What Making is Really About | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
In some instances I think it's hard for some library staff to articulate the gains that teens make as a result of the making programs we provide. And, as a result it ends up that we talk about the actual printing activity and the printer and not the skills learned and/or improved on.

Building Belief in Libraries | Pivot Points | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Librarians can’t assume that district leaders are believers, writes Mark Ray. Some get it; others don’t. Those who don’t may be listening for different information. If librarians align their words and work with top educational issues, miracles might just happen.

Russ on Reading: In Praise of School Librarians

Russ on Reading: In Praise of School Librarians | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

I learned very early in my teaching career that the school librarian could be the teacher's best friend. I was teaching at Bristol Junior-Senior High School in Pennsylvania and had been charged with taking my freshly minted Master's degree in literacy, which the school district had helped pay for, and starting a brand new "developmental reading" program for the seventh grade. To start the program, the district gave me the princely sum of $400. I took my purchase order and my own list and went down to the school library to talk to Hilda Ben Ezra, school librarian.
