• A comprehensive index

"Eleven thematic chapters cover 21st-century learning standards, 21st-century learners, envisioning a vibrant library media program, the 21st-century school library media specialist, reading, inquiry-based teaching and learning, assessment, collaboration between library media specialists and classroom teachers, creating a toolkit of instructions strategies, and sample elementary and secondary lesson plans. Suitable for use in preservice classes, in practitioner study groups, or as a reference for individuals."


Reference & Research Book News

"This is a heavy-weight that deserves reading. Not only does it present strategies that allow for full use of the new AASL standards, it is a collection of many of the field's best thinkers talking about the need and use of these new standards and 21st century learning. . . . This is a good reference for why and how to use standards effectively. Not a cover-to-cover read, it is a compendium of ideas and thoughts useful to school libraries."


Teacher Librarian

"This is an excellent starting point for examining AASL's standards and provides a solid basis for library-school and in-service offerings. Current school librarians will probably want to pick and choose chapters to read."



"The book is equally useful as a textbook or as a guide for those already in the school library."


School Library Journal

Book Description

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 indispensable classroom partner. But how do you make that blueprint a working reality?
