Thanks Becky. I'm with you about feeling our way along here a bit. I think those of us who have been in the field for awhile have been doing our own version of RA with our particular student bodies. I think each us can probably bring some form of knowledge or lens to the process as we proceed and learn.

Maybe I'm just projecting, but it seems to me like we're stuck. If that is the case, I was wondering if it might help if we chose a book or two and then discussed the various elements of that particular book or those books. Any opinions about this idea? Or other ideas as to how to progress? Or do you think everything is moving along just fine for you?

Well, I get the feeling we lost some momentum here. I sort of kept going with the reading of each module anyway. A lot of what is there is aimed at public library adult work but there is plenty for us school types as well. Maybe everyone should read through the rest of the units and we could reconvene and share some general thoughts on the information i.e. best ideas, what applies to us, how do you transfer this to K-12 etc. What do you think?

Elisabeth, I agree with you that we seem to have lost some momentum and I like your idea of looking at the rest of the modules and seeing what applies to us. Perhaps I was just getting stuck on trying to understand the appeal factors. What do others think of moving on and focusing on what applies to k-12 school librarians?
