Book Description

Ever since the initial release of the AASL's Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, School Library Monthly magazine has consistently focused on providing librarians with the information and strategies they need to help students achieve those standards. Now from the pages of that magazine comes a collection that no school library or librarian should be without.

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.

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?
