Teachers asked, “Who’s in your school library?”

8 02 2011

See the new issue (January/February 2011) of Teacher magazine published by the Australian Council for Educational Research for our latest article, this time with important information for teachers on school libraries. “Who’s in your school library?” (pp.64-65) lets teachers know about the research which shows that well-stocked and properly staffed school libraries make a difference to quality teaching and to student literacy and learning. If their school is falling short, it is suggested they find out more and lobby the decision-makers asking “why Australia is falling behind in the PISA reading results…”? Recommended reading for all teachers.





Australian School Libraries Research Project

27 11 2007

The Hub’s informal and completely unscientific survey of Australian teacher librarians was a prelude to the real deal. 

Has your school completed the surveys  that are part of this joint venture by Edith Cowan University, ALIA and ASLA?  The closing date for participation in this is this Friday,  November 30th.

If you have not done this yet, have a go.  Information on the survey is here, and the surveys themselves are found here.
