In addition to running the library, school librarians teach information literacy, technology skills, and numerous curriculum topics. Keeling stresses putting educational standards at the heart of every lesson and emphasizes that collaboration with other teachers will further enhance learning. This extensive collection of lessons is organized by grade level, from kindergarten to fifth grade. Each lesson begins with a listing of standards (American Association of School Librarians, Common Core State Standards, and Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning), followed by objectives. Lessons include proper treatment of books, holidays, ecology, how to use the library, and more. Readers will appreciate the brief, easy-to-follow directions and recommended resources. Activities and suggestions for team teaching are included.
VERDICT A useful resource for all elementary school librarians.
