Curriculum & Collaboration in Schools
How librarians create change
Wednesday 9 March, 4-5pm
Advocacy for school librarians has never been more critical. The most powerful advocate for a school library and librarian is the Senior Leadership Team.
This webinar will look at how collaboration between teachers and school libraries can further the aims of the school and ensure it becomes an integral part of the education process. We will look at ways teachers can work with libraries through inquiry and research skills as well as literacy and reading promotion to bring the school library into the heart of the curriculum.
