Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy

Teacher-librarians change with the times - students need to be more info-savvy | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it

Today, in addition to introducing children to books and curating collections in school libraries, teacher-librarians are doing the same with websites and online information.

They often research and vet appropriate websites ahead of time to provide to teachers when they're covering a particular subject, just as they do with books.

But they also teach students to do better Internet searches, refine their search terms, and become more independent.

Part of the challenge is a trend teachers and librarians call "satisficing," a combination of satisfying and sufficient or suffice, said Finlay. In other words, students' approach is often "get what I need for an assignment and hand it in."

Teacher-librarians aim to get students to look deeper into their subjects.

Free Printable: Reading Scavenger Hunt - Modern Parents Messy Kids

Free Printable: Reading Scavenger Hunt - Modern Parents Messy Kids | Transforming our practice - school libraries | Scoop.it
Scavenger hunts and reading make the perfect pair. Discovering new stories, interesting characters, or a great series builds your child’s love for literature as well as her motivation to become an independent reader. As parents we want to grow our children’s interest in reading but sometimes feel like we’ve run out of ideas on how to do just that. …
L2_S2S's insight:

A great link to pop in your school's newsletter or on your school website and encourage parents to complete it with their children, or better still - print off the scavenger hunt for a school holiday activity and send your class home with a copy each!
