Product Description

Review

"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 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." - Booklist

"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

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