Sebastian Killion is a soft-spoken, well-mannered 18-year-old with a head of mousy brown corkscrew curls that spill onto his forehead, hiding part of his youthful face.Fazio, who grew up in the South Sound, was at the library teaching kids about what it takes to make it in the voice-over world. Her recent visit was part of a workshop hosted by the downtown library’s StoryLab, a program geared toward teaching digital media to Tacoma’s youths.

"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..."

Lisa Norris's curator insight, September 21, 7:55 PM

I never feel under utilized, but I also am not quiet about what resources and supports I can provide my school community.  I feel very appreciated for the strengths I can contribute.  However, I couldn't do it all without my fabulous assistant!!

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!
