This is such a powerful 5 minute video on the impact of the school library on students' reading ability and their motivation and interest in reading. It also demonstrates the power of having a school principal with a teacher librarianship background. The claims made by these school community members is backed up by school-based data and the improvement in students' behaviour as readers and literary learners.
"In this post, Eric Sheninger describes the secrets to New Milford High School's Makerspace, and how every school can build a Makerspace."
Eric Sheninger is one of those school principals you'd just love to clone. What I like about this article is that it is the school principal (not the teacher librarian) who is publishing evidence of his school library's impact on student learning.
And his conclusion says it all!! "The Makerspace in the library is an oasis for student self-directed learning. It serves as a rejuvenation center for inspiring of love for both formal and informal learning. In my opinion, a space like this should be a priority for all schools in the twenty-first century; and you do not have to break the bank to create one."
