Priority Schools Teacher Librarian Initiative
Transcript of Priority Schools Teacher Librarian Initiative
Through Our School Library Programs! "A strong library media program in a school is an essential component in a rich educational experience." D.V. Loertscher, OLA Summit on School Libraries, Toronto, May 2002 "In schools with well-stocked, well-equipped school libraries, managed by qualified and motivated professional teacher-librarians working with support staff, one can expect:
Capable and avid readers;
Learners who are information literate;
Teachers who are partnering with the teacher-librarian to create high-quality learning experiences.
Standardized scores tend to be 10 to 20% higher than in schools without this investment." K.C. Lance & D.V. Loertscher.
