Crossing the Divide - New Edition

CtDWe have just republished Crossing the Divide: LRC Induction and Transition Strategies by Geoff Dubber - one of the most popular titles in our "Guidelines Plus" series.

This essential guide for the busy school librarian is now available again in a fully updated and expanded edition. It incorporates the latest government thinking across the UK about induction at age 11+ in general and how these thoughts can be applied to school library work.

It also includes transition ideas for the 14+ students about to start exam courses, induction for 6th Formers and the often neglected area of adults new to the school too. Reference is also made to creating induction links between schools and higher education.

New case studies complete this key title on developing positive attitudes in newcomers and a focused working environment throughout the secondary school.
