Does It Really Count as A Book? The Attitudes of Teachers and School Librarians Toward Graphic Novels - This session presents the findings of a study related to the equitable access to graphic novels. The debate over the viability of graphic novel use in the classroom continues. The researchers of this study questioned not only the attitudes of school librarians and classroom teachers towards the use of graphic novels but also, equitable access to graphic novels. Enabling School Librarians to Serve as Instructional Leaders of Multiple Literacies - This session will present research that was conducted to explore how school district leaders can foster the development of an effective school library in which school librarians serve as instructional leaders in multiple literacies. Implications for practice will be shared regarding the specific types of support needed by building-level school librarians and district leaders to establish effective school libraries. Strategies for advocating for this support will be discussed. Secondary Student Information Literacy Self-Efficacy Vs. Performance - Although students have grown up as digital natives, they are often weak when it comes to implementing information literacy (IL) skills. School librarians know this anecdotally, but other school stakeholders may not. In this session, you will arm yourself with data that shows evidence of these discrepancies and participate in a discussion on ways to present these data to multiple stakeholders as well as how to increase instructional teacher-librarian collaborative partnerships in the area of IL.
