Let’s explore the school librarian’s unique opportunities to influence teaching and learning in our schools. Using the School Library Evaluation Checklist, participants will engage in a collaborative process for shoring up key “collaborate” behaviors that lead to maximizing the effectiveness of partnerships. As empowered school library leaders, participants will leave the session with strategies and tools to co-lead alongside administrators and other educators to transform learning communities.
Participants will use the “Collaborate” criteria from the School Library Evaluation Checklist as a guide to leading positive instructional change.
Participants will use the AASL themes of Think/Create/Share/Grow to specify unique opportunities to co-lead alongside principals/other educators.
Participants will leave the session with strategies to reach out to promising partners/further build their leadership role/maximize their influence.
