Great analogy - from a grocery store to a kitchen.

Inquiry and Nonfiction | On Common Core | School Library Journal | Selection Toolkit | Scoop.it

What is "literature of inquiry" and how can you guide students to read it critically, use it to teach them scientific behaviors, and align your instruction with Common Core Standards?  This short overview from School Library Journal suggests many possibilities for using library collections of "inquiry" texts, such as Cornerstones of Science titles (fmi, see: http://cornerstonesofscience.org/grade-level-teens.aspx).

Flipping The Library Classroom for Information Literacy - Connect Learning Today

Flipping The Library Classroom for Information Literacy - Connect Learning Today | Selection Toolkit | Scoop.it

Like many Teaching Librarians across the country, the librarian position in my school had been reduced to part-time before I came to the school. I teach a fixed schedule for grades 1-3 and a flexible, project-based schedule for grades 4 and 5. Managing to fit in all those classes in two days a week requires stamina and imagination. I had been reading about the flipped classroom model for months on all my professional development “channels” such as Twitter, EdWeb, and Edmodo and wondered if elements could be adapted for research instruction at the elementary level.

Getting boys to read can take time

Getting boys to read can take time | Selection Toolkit | Scoop.it
If you were asked to imagine what a typical teenage boy does with his downtime, you'd likely envision him playing video games or using some type of electronic device. Few would picture him with his nose in a book.

Via Claudia M. Reder
Angela Falkenberg's insight:

I would like to find books for boys that reach beyond, but are influenced by their current safety zone of Percy Jackson, Big Nate, etc.

We are trying to incorporate more e-books to stay up-to-date with reading trends. Our school community is also extremely diverse, so multicultural awareness is vital.
