R.E.A.D All About It!
High School Library Marketing and Advocacy Project
review by Susan Adkins
R.E.A.D. @ your library!
This logo cleverly weaves together the importance of reading, lifelong learning, and the library as a center for where all of this happens. It is:
- easy to remember!
- Great hook, "Two heads are better than one, right?"
- Designed to interest teachers in co-teaching with the school librarian.
- Synthesizes the value of co-teaching.
- Explains how collaboration increases student learning.
- Recognizes motivating students and 21st-century skills as two important end-products of collaboration.
Building Advocacy for the Librarian and Library Program
The ultimate goal of all school stakeholders is to increase student learning and academic success. This product builds educator advocacy for the contributions of the librarian and the library program with:
- a persuasive argument on the value of co-teaching using the acronym C.O.L.L.A.B.O.R.A.T.I.O.N.
- free teacher bookmarks explaining the acronym
- links to evidence-based research that supports co-teaching
- inclusion of three excellent librarian-created co-teaching lesson plans
