This is a group open to all librarians but specific to international school librarians. Since we usually don't have a district or neighboring schools to rely on, let's create our own network here.See More

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with/insight into FlexBooks, the open-source online textbooks in development by the CK-12 organization. On first looking into it, there seemed to be an over-reliance on wikipedia, but then they do have content-area experts who review chapters/books. Is this a tool I can get out there to teachers or has it yet to prove itself?

Hi everybody,I'm about to begin a new year at a new school and will be working with seconday students for the first time ever (was previously in an elementary school). I'd like to come up with a proposal for a school-wide research process and am really interested in the guided inquiry model. The thing is, after reading up on it a bit, I'm still not totally clear on what it looks like in action. Is it completely…See More
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!

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
