CANCELLED From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative (AASL ESLS) Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 13-15
Description :

School library staffing around the country currently faces a wide range of challenges, from systems facing a shortage of credentialed candidates to other systems where school library positions have been eliminated. Additionally, licensure requirements vary widely from state to state and impact university preparation and school hiring decisions. As a result, school libraries may be left unstaffed or staffed by paraprofessionals or others unprepared for the challenges facing twenty-first century school libraries. How do we prepare new “leaders to transform teaching and learning” in this context? How and where should we be recruiting these leaders? These are issues facing school library supervisors and university preparation programs, yet they have significant implications for all K-12 education stakeholders concerned with preparing students who are workplace and college ready. Faced with these challenges, school systems and universities are exploring innovative paths to the recruitment, preparation and support of school library staff. In this session a panel of district library supervisors, state leaders, and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians who will be leaders in the transformation of teaching and learning. The panel of district library supervisors and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians.

The Google, the Bing, and the Open Web: Teaching Credibility Assessment to Young Adults [Closed, $] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center
3003 (W)
Description :

"As the Internet becomes more essential in meeting young people’s everyday life and academic information needs, ensuring that students have the skills needed to assess the credibility of online resources becomes more critical. These skills are particularly difficult to teach, largely due to the ambiguity of what makes a site both credible and relevant to a young and inexperienced searcher.

This workshop will introduce participants to methods of credibility assessment instruction informed through research conducted by a team at the University of Maryland, in collaboration with school librarians in selected middle schools. This collaborative team runs weekly after-school sessions through the program, HackHealth, wherein young people learn to become effective users of health information, increase their health literacy and health-related self-efficacy, and make positive changes to their health behaviors. By selecting, researching, and presenting on a health topic of personal relevance, students learn valuable skills of digital research in a way that is connected to their own lives.

Using data collected and methods tested during HackHealth sessions, this workshop will present strategies for effectively teaching Web-based credibility assessment to middle and high school students. The workshop will incorporate:
• Hands-on learning, such as real-time credibility assessment, group discussion on current practices, and
demonstrations of credibility lessons;
• Interactive presentations of effective credibility assessment strategies to use in the library and classroom; and
• Activities focused on developing ways to incorporate skills learned into the participants’ teaching practices.
More specifically, librarians will come away from the workshop with individual action plans to take back to their schools. Depending on their needs, librarians will be able to build innovative lesson plans, create professional development activities, and develop strategies to implement credibility instruction across grade levels."

Diversity Goggles: Examining the Literacy Development of Black & Latino Youth from Critical Multicultural Perspectives [$] Forum/Update/Assembly, Preconference/Institute Moscone Convention Center
3007 (W)
Description :

Although libraries can play an important role in helping to ensure that youth have the literacy skills they need to succeed in school and be ready for college or careers, research suggests that Black and Latino youth often feel disconnected from their school and public libraries. This half-day workshop will examine how teen services professionals can better support the literacy development of youth of color through library programs and services. Participants will use “diversity goggles,” provided by the presenters, as a tool to examine librarian perspectives and practices towards Black and Latino youth, with the goal of improving their understanding of how to better meet the needs of these youth . The workshop will feature a panel of YA authors whose work speaks to Black and Latino youth experiences. These authors will not only discuss their work, but will also engage in the broader conversation concerning ways to better support Black and Latino youth through libraries. Authors who will be participating include: Kekla Magoon, Isabel Quintero, and Adam Silvera. This workshop is sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association, with funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Facilitated by Dr. Kafi Kumasi and Dr. Sandra Hughes-Hassell.
