I have just discovered this book. I am rethinking my program. I have a meeting with the principal on Wednesday and want to put in a strong agrument for it. Is anyone willing to tell me how they used the ideas and the results in their school? I know you are all on vacation and I will be too in a couple days. but I sure would appreciate your thoughts.See More
We will "headquarter" our discussion of "Comprehension and Collaboration: Inquiry Circles In Action" (Harvey & Daniels, 2009) from here. Feel free to link, create, innovate all kinds of other things - but link it all back here!See More
Elementary school media specialist. I am interested in rethinking the way I have been doing the media program. I am in a new hi-tech, project based school and need to make "the leap" with everyone else.
I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Mansfield University Scholarship Program – Begin in January 2012
In an ongoing effort to recruit a new generation of school library leaders, Mansfield University recently received a fifth Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) grant to fund scholarships for its totally online School Library & Information Technologies Master of Education degree program with school library certification. If you know of an educator or non-certified librarian seeking school library certification, please pass along the news that we are still accepting applications for the spring 2012 semester.
The Master of Education program, ideally suited for working educators
with no time to drive to a university, offers a convenient and effective path to school library certification. For detailed information and contacts please refer to the Fulfilling the Promise homepage, at http://libweb.mansfield.edu/promise/, or contact Cynthia Keller, Department Chair firstname.lastname@example.org
