I do need to wrap one more thing up this year: Year End Report time! This has been the most professionally rewarding year yet in the library.
By the numbers:
Collaborative media or information literacy instruction sessions:
Improving Powerpoint (wildly requested)
Ethics & Copyright: digital photography
General and subject research projects (go Math department!): pre-research, searching, evaluating, and using ethically
Read In Cafe events
- Use blog to increase teacher-library collaboration (collaboration has doubled from last year!)
- Fiction section weeded and reorganized in to genres
- Information literacy course proposal accepted by the school board and will be taught next year
- Read In Cafe events were a big success
Goals for 2011/2012 School Year:
- Successful implementation of new elective course: Information and Society
- Select pilot department for e-book implementation (instruction and determine viability for other departments)
- Continue to expand collaborative ventures with classroom teachers
- Possible shift of senior portfolios to electronic format
A few images from the year:
This has been an extremely successful year in terms of increasing the library’s reach toward being a center of information, technology, and media instruction. I can’t wait for all of the expansion opportunities and goals set for next year!
I’m taking a little break from blogging. The last few weeks of school are always madness, from getting 2,500 textbooks checked in to making sure all library books are returned and all of the other wrap up details required in the library. The summer months are devoted to family time and specifically, my son.
When August rolls around, however, I have grand plans to jump back in to this blog, intensively writing about my information literacy course. I hope to include lesson plans and reflections about how it all turns out.
See you then!
