Transcript of Elementary PUSD Library Orientation

The Library is about Big Ideas
As we move toward CCSS's,
we need to encourage students to explore solutions, evaluate information and provide authentic learning experiences.
The Library is all about Literacy
Everyone reads for three reasons. (yourself, for fun, and for your future) We teach students to be purposeful in their selection of materials and to respond to what they read.
Creating your own Personal Library
The larger a student's personal library, the greater the chance for personal success and the self-discovery of their purpose, calling and career goals.
The Library is about Caring
The library classroom strives to make learning happen without barriers. We strive to make every encounter a positive experience for every student.
Literacy Plan
The Library is about Digital Learning
Our libraries are beginning the transition from textbooks and term papers to digital courses and assignments encouraging collaboration, sharing and digital publishing.
The K-8 PUSD Library Plan
The 8th grade standard for independent reading is 1 million words per year. That is about 10 Harry Potter books.
Move toward efferent reading(reading for information and details) from aesthetic reading (appreciation, experience, the art and craft)
Help teachers integrate reading into the writing process. Students and teachers stop and read the same work- a piece of poetry, a short descriptive narrative. Have students write their own piece based on the big ideas of the selection. Ask the big questions about how the author draws the reader into the story using their words.
Use the class as a book club where everyone is reading the same book. Assign groups of students to talk about a section of the book. Have them come up with questions for students to respond to.
Surprise them with an electronic book presentation using e-books or Tumblebooks!
10 chapter books in 10 months with 80% or higher average on practice tests.

Self-Sustaining Library
