Connecting Libraries with Classrooms: The Curricular Roles of the Media Specialist
The role and responsibilities of the library media specialist in the 21st century continue to expand. Since the passing of the No Child Left Behind Act, music education in many schools has declined or even been eliminated. An increasing percentage of students in the United States have a primary language other than English. Nearly every state now utilizes supplemental or full-time online programs for K-12 students.
This latest version of Connecting Libraries with Classrooms: The Curricular Roles of the Media Specialist is intended to help school librarians to collaborate with teachers in subject areas, meet the needs of special groups of students, and be fully aware of important educational trends.
The first chapter covers collaboration and partnerships within the school setting, providing a background for the subsequent subject matter. The balance of the book addresses the role of the school librarian in the modern K-12 curriculum. This information is organized into the curricula of reading, music, and English as a second language; three groups of special students (students with autism, highly mobile students, and LGBT students); and critical trends in education---Web 2.0, distance education, and inclusion. This resource is an invaluable aid for practicing school librarians and serves as a core textbook for pre-service school librarians.
