Literacy, Libraries and Learning

Rating
The school library has changed dramatically. Today, it's a portal to a world of learning that includes traditional books, digital resources, and online environments. As the importance of information and communication technologies grows, teachers and teacher-librarians hold the key to creating powerful learning opportunities that will help students function more effectively in our modern world. This thought-provoking book discusses the literacy needs of students and the changing responsibilities of classroom teachers and teacher-librarians in helping students become better readers, writers, and researchers. It offers suggestions for re-inventing the school library by offering a better and more current selection of resources and instilling students with the reading habit. A comprehensive guide for educators, this practical book encourages collaboration between teachers and teacher-librarians. It uses the extensive experience of a group of educators to suggest solutions to the challenges of the information age for classroom teachers, including: promoting reading for learning and pleasure; improving critical literacy skills when using information from many sources; encouraging research methods that respect copyright and lead to original work; designing information tasks to help students work effectively with data; encouraging the integration of emerging technologies and traditional resources. "Literacy, Libraries, and Learning" argues that using diverse learning resources can improve literacy achievement.
