Books Appeal to Teachers: Getting Teachers to Use the School Library Across the Curriculum
It's time to become an evangelist for the library! If teachers do not use your library as they teach their subjects, how can students be expected to develop the habit of using the library for enrichment throughout their lives?
This book of ideas will help you encourage teachers to incorporate use of your media center into their daily lesson plans. These curriculum areas are specifically covered: art, English, foreign languages, guidance, history, home economics, industrial arts, mathematics, microcomputers, music, physical education, and science--but these ideas can be the blueprint for adaptation to other subjects as needed. Setting up a foreign language lab, finding the answer to household problems, sports math that involves researching an individual team's performance, a crossword puzzle about computer terminology--these are just a few of the ideas that could turn on your teachers to the fact that the library is where it's happening!
