Literacy Specialists meeting notes

This morning I attended a meeting for campus Literacy Specialists that was led by the elementary ELAR Team.

Topics discussed were:

  • how to get it all in
  • self-selected reading
  • reading aloud

Click here for my notes, including thoughts on how librarians can use this information to support teachers and align co-teaching efforts with the ELAR curriculum. Also included are documents referenced.

Even though the meeting was focused on elementary curriculum, secondary librarians will want to review the notes with an eye towards modifying some of these same strategies for your secondary students as well as giving yourself working knowledge that will allow you to build on things are taught at the elementary level.

  1. I like the idea of putting a genre tree in the library and having students write the name of the book they are reading on a post-it and placing it on the matching area of the tree. Students should learn about the types of literature that they most enjoy.
