Supporting Literacy in Libraries

Yesterday I had the opportunity to present to some of our literacy teachers working in Southland schools, a range of ideas for how libraries can support the work they are doing with our students.

I always enjoy being able to talk to others about what I love to do, rediscovering a shared passion and connection for reading and learning, and today was no exception.  These teachers genuinely care about their students and the outcomes they can help shape for them. And they’re great at sharing the good things that work for them with others.

As time was limited, I chose to narrow the presentation down to three main areas: Reading for Enjoyment, Extending Reading and Supporting Research.  If you’d like to view my presentation with links to resources I use at Hargest you can now do that on Slideshare.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Lisa. It’s always good to know that what you’re doing is relevant and easy to follow. It’s a bit nerve-wracking to put things you’ve done out there for everyone to see, but I know how much I appreciate others sharing and how much I’ve learned from them, so I feel I need to be doing that where I can too.
