A School Library for the Curriculum: Supporting Teaching and Learning

  • Members 0.00

The modern school librarian encourages reading for pleasure and also supports teaching and learning across the curriculum, both of which areas are highly complex and frequently overlap. This timely publication focuses on the many and varied ways school librarians can support the staff and pupils in schools, by providing the resources and skills they need to successfully negotiate the constantly changing curriculum. This includes innovative approaches, for example organising events such as creative writing sessions or hosting quizzes to enhance literacy across the curriculum – to achieve the best possible results for each individual. Excellent appendices include: a sample subject department scheme of work; the PLUS model for research in action; detailed case studies on Science in the Media and Geography and Literacy; and a sample resource recording grid.
