Section Description

This course is designed to explore theories and best practice for teaching and learning in today's school libraries. School Librarians are educators who demonstrate knowledge of learners and learning. They model and promote collaborative planning and assessment, instruction in multiple literacies, and inquiry-based learning which enables members of the learning community to become effective users and creators of ideas and information. School Librarians design and implement instruction that engages students' interests and develops their ability to inquire, think creatively and critically, build citizenship skills, and gain and share knowledge in a proficiency-based, personalized learning environment. (ALA/AASL/CAEP Standards for Initial Preparation of School Librarians, 2019: Standards 1-5; Vermont Educator Endorsement Standards for School Librarians-School Librarian #61: Standards 1,3,4; Vermont Core Teaching Standards: Standards 1-10)
