"A Discussion About Crossing Borders: “Dewey” Level School Library Collections?"

Saturday, 10/29/11 01:00 PM to 02:15 PM Room 101 I in the Minneapolis Convention Center
This session will focus on the need for school librarians to actively resist the practice of re-organizing school library print collections by reading level, in order to enable students to meet the AASL “Standards for the 21st-Century Learner.” The presenters, from the BC Teacher-Librarians Association and the Washington Library Media Association, have made principled stands for students freedom to read. Tools, resources, and examples will be shared.

Target Audience: School Librarians, Administrators, Classroom Teachers, Library Supervisors, Curriculum Specialists Grade Level: K-3, 4-6, Middle/Junior, High
