This book advocates for the creation of writing centers in 7–12 schools and explains why the school library is the best place for the writing center.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThere is a glaring absence of writing centers in today's K–12 schools. More and more students are being asked in college entrance testing to submit samples of their writing, and employers are expecting their workers to write correctly and clearly. This book addresses the critical lack of writing centers below the undergraduate level. It demonstrates how middle school and high school librarians can create writing centers in their school libraries, explains how to assist students through a one-on-one writing tutorial method, and gives students and teachers the tools for learning and understanding the complex art of writing.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAuthor Timothy Horan—inventor of the School Library Writing Center—establishes why school libraries represent the best—and most logical—places to create writing centers, and why school librarians are the natural choice to direct writing center operations. He then takes readers through the process of creating a writing center from original conception up through opening day.

Not so, says author Sarah Kepple. In this accessible guide, she explains why you don't have to be an expert to lead coding, shows how easy and rewarding learning and teaching coding can be, and provides step-by-step instructions to help you and your community get started.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe book shows how to engage students quickly with learning activities that springboard off of the powerful appeal of video games. The author takes users through activities that introduce popular programming languages—including C++, GameMaker, JavaScript, Python, and Scratch—to create video games, and in the process, to learn coding. These activities, themed around classic and popular stories, appeal to a broad age range—from elementary-age youth through high school and beyond to adults and seniors. Readers will see why school and public libraries are venues ideally suited for coding classes, workshops, clubs, or camps, and they will understand why teaching coding not only meets an important need but also serves to highlight the library's relevance to its community.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\"

Not so, says author Sarah Kepple. In this accessible guide, she explains why you don't have to be an expert to lead coding, shows how easy and rewarding learning and teaching coding can be, and provides step-by-step instructions to help you and your community get started.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe book shows how to engage students quickly with learning activities that springboard off of the powerful appeal of video games. The author takes users through activities that introduce popular programming languages—including C++, GameMaker, JavaScript, Python, and Scratch—to create video games, and in the process, to learn coding. These activities, themed around classic and popular stories, appeal to a broad age range—from elementary-age youth through high school and beyond to adults and seniors. Readers will see why school and public libraries are venues ideally suited for coding classes, workshops, clubs, or camps, and they will understand why teaching coding not only meets an important need but also serves to highlight the library's relevance to its community.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eHelps librarians—even those without prior experience and training—launch highly successful programs in computer coding that engage both traditional literacy and technology literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eBuilds on the library's role as technology hub in the school and\/or community\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eEnables librarians to cultivate practical and valued skills among students and patrons—all while they have fun learning\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eOffers insight from an instructor who leads coding clubs and classes in multiple libraries\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}

Within these chapters, school librarians (whether practicing or prospective) will be introduced to the practical aspects of technology in the school library and presented with a theoretical framework that will allow them to continue their research and learning. Case studies facilitate understanding, as do the study questions included with each chapter.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe world of the school librarian has changed significantly over the past ten years with the proliferation of technology into all phases of education; this book attempts to address these issues.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOnce upon a time, libraries were about books—printed volumes that one found by looking at little cards in a wooden filing case. That image is about as relevant today as the thought of Abraham Lincoln reading by firelight. While books are still at the heart of the library, technology has become the circulatory system without which that heart would not beat.\u003c\/p\u003e"}
