A Word to Teachers

Teaching in a Library

Library teaching is a little different from classroom teaching. Kids are spread out, working on different projects, using different resources, and accountable for different results. So what makes it all work? The nature of the assignment is critical. It must be:

    * do-able -- libraries have information,
    * students do something with the information, not just copy it, and
    * students do better the next time because realistic self-evaluation is built in

To make it work, the teacher, library media specialist, and student must plan, explore resources, and develop skills cooperatively.
