At the end of every school year I put together an Animoto video that highlights our library program at Riverside Elementary (D.C. Everest). My entire budget (except for $225 for supplies) is made up of Common School Funds so we couldn't do what we do without that funding.

A COLLECTIVE CASE STUDY TO EXAMINE ADMINISTRATORS’ INSTRUCTIONAL LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE OF THE ROLE OF INSTRUCTIONAL COACHES AND TEACHER LIBRARIANS IN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Rating
0.0 stars

The purpose of this collective case study was to develop an understanding of why California K12 public school administrators distribute instructional leadership responsibilities to either
instructional coaches or teacher librarians and how the two roles compare within the context of
the implementation of the California Common Core State Standards in ELA/Literacy. The study
addressed the following research questions: Why do administrators select instructional
coaches/teacher librarians to help them provide instructional leadership? How do administrators
and instructional coaches/teacher librarians work together to provide professional learning within
daily instructional practice? How do administrators evaluate the effectiveness of the
instructional coaches’/teacher librarians’ instructional leadership roles? Participants were district
administrators who oversee the population, site administrators who directly supervise site-based
instructional coaches or teacher librarians, and the corresponding instructional coaches and
teacher librarians. Data were collected from multiple sources, including documents, interviews,
observations, and focus groups with participants. Within-case and cross-case analyses were
conducted to develop a naturalistic generalization of what was learned about how the coach and
teacher librarian contributed to instructional leadership. Results demonstrated that administrators’
personal values influence their decisions to select and utilize instructional coaches or teacher
librarians to provide instructional leadership. Instructional coaches are considered to be extensions
of administrators as instructional leaders in ELA while teacher librarians are considered to be
resources that can be called upon to provide occasional instructional support in ELA.

Checklist: 8 Steps to Creating a Diverse Book Collection
Rating
0.0 stars

It’s not easy to create an inclusive book collection. That’s because creating a diverse book collection is about more than just making sure X, Y, and Z are represented. It’s not a matter of ticking off check boxes or making sure quotas are filled. For those committed to doing it right, building a diverse book collection requires contemplation, research, and awareness. But the rewards are great: a truly diverse collection of books can turn children into lifelong readers and promote empathy, understanding, and self-confidence. To make things a little easier, we’ve created a checklist to help.

A Content Analysis of District School Library Selection Policies in the United States
Only Sharing Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

Selection policies are practical tools used by school librarians to guide them in their collection
development plans. This investigation into district-level selection policies examined policies from
80 school districts across the United States. The policies were examined to determine the status
of selection policies in school libraries and if the policies reflect the recommendations of
professional literature. Through content analysis, we determined that most of the school library
selection policies included at least half of the expected key components. However, there is a need
for school librarians to advocate for revision of policies to keep them current and provide
effective guidance for school librarians as they make selections for their collections.
