Description

The term literacy, which is traditionally used to describe the ability to read and write text, is proliferating across library and other educational literature. Financial literacy, digital literacy, civic literacy--it can be dizzying to consider the array of literacies and try to understand how they fit productively into our own school library programs. This issue, guest edited by Tasha Bergson-Michelson and Jole Seroff, examines the underlying commonalities of all these literacies and how a school librarian’s expertise uniquely positions them to hone these skills in students.
