Study: Effective School Libraries Impact Entire Schools, Not Just Test Scores

Study: Effective School Libraries Impact Entire Schools, Not Just Test Scores | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

An effective school library impacts more than student achievement—it also lifts a school's entire educational climate, says a recent two-phase study by Rutgers University's Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries (CISSL) on behalf of the New Jersey Association of School Librarians (NJASL).

Researchers note that effective school libraries reflect strong cooperation, collaboration, and communication among classroom teachers, administrators and school librarians.

"Collaboration is really the key with an effective school library," says Pat Massey, a former NJASL president and the high school library media specialist at South Plainfield High School in New Jersey.

Useful brief to use as a basis for discussion between a TL and their Principal.

Ignoring the Evidence: Another Decade of Decline for School Libraries | Canadian Education Association (CEA) | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

Excellent article by Dianne Oberg presents research evidence that school libraries do make a difference and highlights the importance placed on mandating school library provision in a number of countries throughout the world.

A must-read for those studying TLship and those school communities or districts without a qualified teacher librarian as part of the school staffing formula.

Boring school libraries? Not any more - The National

Boring school libraries? Not any more - The National | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

A new vision for school libraries in Abu Dhabi is reported in the national newspaper of the United Arab Emirates:

 

"The 'least-visited facilities' in Abu Dhabi's government schools are being converted into Learning Resource Centres, where children will go for classes, activities and research. Each centre will be stocked with more than 3,000 English and Arabic books, magazines and newspapers.

They will be made more spacious with comfortable furniture and will include a role-playing area, reading corners, multimedia access, TV and an online catalogue.

The makeover, to be complete in three years, is part of Abu Dhabi Education Council's solution to children's diminishing interest in reading."

"We’re also pretty useful in the classroom. Embedded librarians can add an entirely new level of depth to a class. Even if not embedded, librarians can help faculty identify really useful works to support their class. These can be publicly available, through the library, or even rare books and archival material that students might never even imagine looking for on their own. Librarians can help collaborate on assignments. We have lots of good tips for how to make an assignment that’s difficult to plagiarize, and we definitely can help faculty plan the library research part of the assignment to fit with the collections students have access to. And if we don’t have the collections the faculty member wants, through discussions and collaborations we can often identify what they do need and get the source for future use..."

Content curation defined for services in schools | Teacher Librarians Rule | Scoop.it

Content curation is the ongoing finding and sharing of relevant digital and non-digital content about a specific topic for a specific audience. Typically, this content will come from a variety of properly credited sources and will be collated in such a way that the collection will be more useful than its individual elements.
