Rubric provided by UH Librarian, Christina Gola, April 22, 2011.“It used to be that if we wanted find out about something, we looked at the research and formed an opinion. Now we have an opinion, and we find research to support it.” -Paraphrase, Scott Simon
We can teach copyright and plagiarism by embedding it in units across the year. We are also the go-to source for copyright questions (i.e. entire books scanned in and put on a wiki).

“The problem isn’t finding information, the problem is sorting through the mass of information that’s out there to find what’s really valuable.” -Joe Goetz, University of St. Thomas Librarian Text questions to 281-940-4118.
Why this session? “Most of our students want to do Google searching for everything. My staff even wants to do that. So when I show them what better results they get from the databases, I can even get the teachers to buy in to using them. Teachers are well educated and we shouldn’t have to talk about the databases, but my experience is they don’t use them. I feel like librarians are needed more than ever because we are bombarded with information but so much of it is biased or wrong. Students need the skills to navigate this mass of ‘junk information’ to find the gems. We do that. However, the lay community sees all the answers as being on the web, so they think ‘why do we need libraries at all.’ Instead of needing librarians less, we need their skills more than ever to teach our students how to find reliable, accurate, and balanced information.” -Chris Gill, Katy Junior High Librarian Text questions to 281-940-4118.

STAARImproved Reading = Improved STAAR Passing Rates Libraries can provide exposure to different genres: poetry, nonfiction, drama. Collaboration! Teach together as a team. Embed research skills into curriculum year-round rather than having a research “unit.” Text questions to 281-940-4118.
Alignment District-wide lessons that match curriculum!Examples:• When 1st grade teaches ABC order, the library has a lesson on books shelved in ABC Order.• When 5th grade math teaches decimals, the library has a lesson on Dewey Decimal order. Text questions to 281-940-4118.
College Ready?“Students need to go to the library and learn about the library’s resources - print and electronic - if they’re going to be successful with research. They can’t hope to find good results with just the tools they’re used to (Google, Wikipedia, etc). And they really need to know that librarians are there to guide and instruct them in this learning process. Librarians are there to help you. Ask them for help.” -Joe Goetz, University of St. Thomas Text questions to 281-940-4118.
