The Tibrarian Handbook: A Teacher-Librarian's Guide to Transforming the Library Into a Center of Learning
208 pages • 8½ x 11
A Tibrarian, put simply, is a teacher-librarian—a librarian who makes her library classroom the most hands-on, supportive and engaging learning environment possible. In this age of ever-emerging technology and educational strategies, in which patrons and librarians alike are constantly presented with new ways to read, research and communicate, the idea of what defines a library is shifting, too. The Tibrarian Handbook provides thoughtful lesson plans, an in-depth look at reading motivation strategies, suggestions for using technology effectively and ideas for keeping students focused, excited and on-task. It is an invaluable guide for the elementary librarian who is looking for new ways to integrate herself into the learning process and seeking to demonstrate her indispensable role in the school community. Grades K–5.
