Lessons Taught and Lessons Learned: School Library Students Share | Knowledge Quest
In this blog post, I wanted to address what became the class final assignment. The American Association of School Libraries (AASL) adopted new standards in 2018. In the standards book, AASL relates the new standards to the previously adopted 5 roles of the school librarian: teacher, information specialist, instructional partner, program administrator, and leader. We spent the semester exploring the new standards through the lens of these 5 powerful roles of school librarianship. For a final project, my students were asked to design a podcast, a video, a presentation, or a blog post that intertwined the roles, the standards, their thoughts, and their future careers.
