Hot off the press – Becoming and Being: Reflections on Teacher-Librarianship Volume 2

Pages from Becoming and Being_ Reflections on Teacher-Librarianship Volume2 2016

This new ebook has been written by recent graduates of  University of Alberta’s MEdTL program. The book presents chapters under 5 broad aspects of the teacher librarian experience:

  • Becoming and being a teacher librarian
  • TLs engaging and supporting students
  • TLs becoming and being literacy leaders
  • TLs becoming and being technology leaders
  • TLs becoming and being school leaders

What I particularly like about this book is the chapter structure where all authors were asked to use this 4 point framework:

  • Why should school leaders care …?
  • What do school leaders need to know…?
  • What can school leaders do about … ?
  • What does this mean for school leaders…?

The framework is based on the expectation that school principals, and others playing a leadership role in the school, are proactive in taking responsibility for developing, implementing and evaluating an effective school library program.

Congratulations to editors, Jennifer Branch-Mueller and Wei Wei, and program supporter, Dianne Oberg. This is a powerful way of giving new TL graduates a voice as authors, while providing professional learning material for those currently enrolled in a Masters in TLship program, for TL practitioners and school leaders.
