*SCHOOL LIBRARIES*



Monday, Jan. 5 (6-7 pm)

*Global Teacher Librarian with Andy Plemmons & Joyce Valenza (TL Virtual
Café)*

Never before have we had truly effective tools for synchronous conferencing
and media-rich asynchronous group discussion. Never before have we been
able to leverage our emerging online communities of practice. Never before
has participation been so possible. Never before has our world been so
flat. Never before has it be more obvious that the prefix geo might amplify
themes in any curriculum. Our children deserve teachers and librarians who
are global. TLs who can plan meaningful global learning partnerships,
connecting learners, classrooms and libraries through inquiry projects and
expanding the possibilities of expanding the books we read.

of School Librarians)*

This generation will grow up and run the world, so let's get them thinking!
The educational paradigm is shifting requiring us to move from rote and
recall to rigor and research.  In this webinar, we'll share 10 examples of
assignments, read-alouds, research essential questions and library
activities that require students to think!  This will be a fun hour to
contemplate whether you are tapping into our greatest asset--the Brain!

Wednesday, Jan. 14 (3-4 pm)

*The Research Process (EdWeb)*

With or without the Common Core, there is a renewed focus on inquiry in
K-12 education. Students are expected to demonstrate proficiency in
research skills, but they seldom have a clear understanding of how to grow
their learning - how to shift from superficial, fact-finding overviews, to
deep, targeted, and detailed evidence collection. This session is dedicated
to developing instruction that helps students with that transition, and to
building close reading activities that promote critical resource evaluation.

Monday, Jan. 19 (6-7 pm)

*Teacher Librarian News Night (TL Virtual Café)*

This is a LIVE show presented in news show format featuring a Wrap up of
“This Month in School Libraries” and deeper discussion of topical school
library issues with special guest experts. Did we mention it was LIVE?

Tuesday, Jan. 20 (12-1 pm)

*Fostering Success through Inquiry, Synthesis, and Higher Standards
(Booklist)*

Ensuring students are college- and career-ready in today's world means
developing their inquiry-based learning skills, engaging students in
higher-level thinking, and developing their ability to argue with evidence.
Join Booklist and Scholastic Library Publishing for this free, hour-long
webinar where Paige Jaeger, School Library Media Specialist and Educational
Administrator, will discuss how implementing strategies to raise the bar
can serve to triage the growing challenge around increasing student
engagement, achievement, and thought. Discover tangible strategies for
encouraging higher-level thought and preparing students for college and
beyond. Moderated by Booklist Books for Youth senior editor Ilene Cooper.

Friday, Jan. 23 (9-10 am)

*Teaching Advanced Research Skills to Generation Z Students (GALE Geek)*

Tech-savvy Gen Z students are using natural search language in databases
expecting to find the same results they would when using Google, which
leads to unrealistic expectations and poor search results. Join Katy
Koskela, Media Specialist at Mercy High School, as she shares her tips on
teaching Gen Z students how to search databases to find exactly what they
need with minimal clicks.
