About

Overview

A collection of articles from School Library Media Activities Monthly - recently renamed School Library Monthly - highlighting practical ways library media specialists can help their schools implement the AASL's Standards for 21st-Century Learners. In 2007, the American Association of School Librarians introduced the Standards for the 21st-Century Learner - a blueprint for helping school libraries take full advantage of contemporary media and a guide for making the library media specialist an indispensible classroom partner.

21st-Century Learning in School Libraries: Putting the AASL Standards To Work brings together the ideas and methods of leading school librarians and educators across the nation, all focused on meeting the new standards. The book begins with a survey of 21st-century learning documents and an examination of how learning has changed for today’s student. It offers a wide range of articles - over 90 in all - in a series of chapters on key themes, a vision for successful school libraries, inquiry, collaboration, assessment, reading, and pedagogical strategies. Each chapter has an introduction, discussion questions, and promotional and advocacy strategies.
