Series: SLA Guidelines Plus · Level: Secondary

Working effectively with young people and adults in a busy secondary school library is an essential part of the work of all the staff. The earlier edition of this popular Guideline had been out of print for three years, but the book has now been fully updated and revised in the light of 'Every Child Matters'.

With a range of new case studies written by established and well known school librarians who share their own experiences, it will look at the issues surrounding behaviour management - style and image, body language, use of whole school policies and of course it suggests strategies to use with groups and individuals. It also includes a section on working with adults in the school library context - not always the easiest of users.

A sample extract from Section Three: General Strategies is available as a PDF download (134 KB).
