    • 1. Applying the Principles of Epigenetics for a (R)evolution in School Librarianship
      presented by Buffy J. Hamilton || Teacher Librarian Café || April 19, 2010
    • 2. Darwin’s work teaches that evolutionary genetic changes take place slowly over many years and through natural selection
    • 3. The science of epigenetics disrupts the notion of slow change and the belief that we have little to no control over our genes
    • 4. Cellular changes to the epigenome (the cellular material that sits atop the DNA) can impact genetic material and accelerate significant change to the genome
    • 5. These changes are akin to “flipping a switch” that impact gene expression by turning the genes “on” or “off”
    • 6. The promise of epigenetics: the potential to mitigate or cure ailments and harness the power of beneficial gene expression
    • 7. What can we as librarians glean from the study of epigenetics?
    • 8. We can look for external changes and influences to help our profession not just survive but to flourish in harsh conditions
    • 9. lack of full funding and budget cuts have “silenced” many of our “genes”
    • 10. aclimate that values standardized test scores over inquiry has impacted our genes
    • 11. filtering fears are debilitating to our growth
