  • 1. Collection Development Plan Lindsey LaBarge ITEC 7134 Dr. Repman March 6, 2009
  • 2. Jackson County Comprehensive High School Site Description In this collection development plan, the section about nations and continents in Jackson County Comprehensive High School’s mediacenter will be evaluated. JCCHS is one of three high schools in the county. It is located in Jefferson, Georgia which is fairly in the center ofthe county. The other two high schools are Jefferson, which is the city school, and EJCHS, which serves the students in the eastern section ofthe county. The school was not built too long ago. It is newer than the city school, but much older than EJCHS. There has been some disputewithin the county about EJCHS having nicer amenities than JCCHS, but that cannot e helped because EJCHS is only two years old andJCCHS is over ten years old. Each classroom has at least one computer. There are seven computer labs in the school, not including the mediacenter. Each teacher has a laptop that is issued to them at the beginning of each school year. The mascot of JCCHS is the panther. The schoolcolors are red and black. JCCHS Staff As of right now, there are 83 certified employees and 42 non-certified employees. There will be much less next year because ourschool district has to tighten its belt because of the lack of money. A majority of the certified staff have more than 5 years experience andmany have more than 10 years of experience. Most have been working at this school their entire career. Many have Master’s degrees and 5have Doctorate degrees. The certified staff includes one principal, three assistant principals, two media specialists, three resource teachers,eight English teachers, ten math teachers, nine science teachers, twelve social studies teachers, one art teacher, two band directors, one chorusteacher, one drama teacher, four agriculture teachers, three business education teachers, two family and consumer sciences teacher, oneinformation technology teacher, three JROTC instructors, two health occupations teachers, one video broadcasting teacher, one youthapprenticeship teacher, one driver’s education teacher, six physical education teacher, one graduation coach, one ESOL teacher, and one AP
  • 3. coordinator. The non-certified staff includes three counselors, two instructional technologists, nine cafeteria workers, seven custodians, threesecretaries, and eighteen paraprofessionals. JCCHS Student Analysis JCCHS’s current student enrollment is 875. Out of these 875 students, 390 are male and 485 are female. There are 23 African-American students, 124 Asian/Pacific Islander students, 231 students are Hispanic and the rest are Caucasian. There are 308 studentscompleting the college prep diploma, 493 students completing the dual seal diploma and the rest are completing the tech seal diploma. Thereare six classes that are being evaluated for this plan. Two classes are Advanced Placement, two are advanced and two are regular education.Within these classes there are 24 Advanced Placement students, 41 advanced students and 58 regular education students. All but four of thesestudents are at or above their grade reading level. There are 48 tactile learners, 9 auditory learners, 15 visual learners and 51 kinestheticlearners within these six classes. JCCHS Media Center JCCHS’s media center is in the very front of the building next to the offices. It is small, but well organized. There is the main roomwhere all of the books and computers are kept. There are three offices. One of the offices is for one of the media specialists and the mediacenter paraprofessional. The other office is for the other media specialist and all of the videos. The last office is for the resource officer. Thelast room in the media center is for all of the audio visual equipment and the laminator. In the main room there are twenty computers that thestudents can use to work on the Internet and print materials. Two of these computers are connected to scanners. There is usually a line for thetwo computers with scanners attached. There are also two computers for the media specialists. One is a Mac and the other is a Dell. Theparaprofessional also has a computer that she uses to check-in and check-out books.
  • 4. In the back room where all the audio visual equipment is kept, there is a cart for MediaCast which is used for digitizing all of theDVDs and VHS tapes that our school district contains. Back in the main room, the books are organized according to the Dewey DecimalSystem. The fiction books cover the exterior wall and the reference books are in the center of the room. In the back corner there are shelvesthat hold all of the nonfiction books. The media specialists keep all of the high demand books up front with waiting lists. Next to the referencesection, there are periodicals. The media center receives 17 periodicals monthly. There are very few months that there are periodicals left atthe end because the students steal them. From looking through the media center at the available books and videos, the area that is lacking the most is the area of resourcesabout international countries. There are very few resources and the resources that we do have are old and irrelevant. There are only 66resources in the media center that deal directly with the standards listed below. Here is a list of these resources.Title Author Published DateAfrica Shaped by the Past Jean Meltzer 2004 (video)Africa David Wiley 1984Africa Facts & Figures William Mark Habeeb 2005Africa and the Origin of Humans 1992Africa Today Paul F.

Collection Evaluation: Quanitative The 66 resources listed above that deal directly with the listed standards are a very small percentage of the resources in the mediacenter. This collection has not been added to for several years because of the lack of funds. In fact, there was no money this year, so not onepart of the collection was added to. Hopefully next year there will be enough money to at least add a few resources. The majority of the bookslisted above have rarely been checked out. This year, the students are avoiding most of them because of the condition of the book. It seemsthat if the book is much older than five years, the students ignore it. Most of the books in this section have taped and glued spines and covers.The average condition of the resources is not good. One of the media specialists expressed extreme anger about not being able to replacesome of the older resources and get new resources for the students. She is not happy about not being able to place an order this year. She saidthat she is asking the board office to let the media centers who were not able to place an order this year be first in line for the money nextyear. Hopefully, that will help us boost the resources that are in the media center and help the students get the information that they need.
  • 15. Collection Evaluation: Qualitative The media center at JCCHS is very user friendly. The books are listening tapes are easily accessed by the students. On each of thecomputers available to the students there is the software necessary to locate books, access an online class and find your grades for any classthat you are taking or have taken. The media center computers all have Destiny, Infinite Campus and a drive that allows students to savedocuments to the computers. The media center is designed well, except there is one corner called “the stacks” where students frequently go tosleep because it is impossible to see them from anywhere else in the media center. There is actually no way to fix this besides taking the timeto frequently go back there to check for sleepers. Within the section of books that I listed above, there is only one that is written in anotherlanguage, that language is Spanish. We have a very large number of students that speak Spanish and are not comfortable with English. Itwould be great if we had more sources in more than just English. We also have a large number of Hmong students. There needs to be somebuilding up of our multilingual collection. That would be very beneficial to a large number of our students. Collection Evaluation: Titlewise Analysis According to the TitleWise Collection Analysis Overview, JCCHS has 20989 holdings. This means that there are 23.99 holdings perstudent. The average age of the collection is from 1987. That means that the average age of the books in the media center is 22 years old. Thedata integrity of the resources is 96.9%. The collection has a range of 9 books from the 1900’s decade to 3704 books in the 2000’s decade.The collection is mostly over the age sensitive range. Systems data and computer programs are 100% over the acceptable age range. Thesection of the collection that is the most age relevant is astronomy and allied sciences. That section is only 85.23% over the acceptable agerange. There should be some extensive weeding done, but that can only be done when there is money to also build up the collection after it is
  • 16. weeded. The section of the collection that is shown in the section about the media center is less than .5% of the entire collection. That is notenough at all. There is a huge lack of resources about the world. That is why I chose this topic. Collection Evaluation: Teacher Questionnaires I received responses from each of the three teachers that I interviewed for this evaluation. Each of these teachers are responsible forteaching some if not all of the standards that are listed above. These teachers each have their own personal library that they house in theirclassroom. They allow students to use their resources, but some of the things that they have mentioned that the media center lacks are thingssuch as recorded books that the students can listen to and videos that correspond with the curriculum. They also mentioned a lack of referencematerials. The lack of resources has not helped them in covering the standards that are applicable to their classes. Since most of the resourcesthat these teachers own are college texts or advanced reading, they suggested that some of the resources needed for the media center should beat a lower reading level to help the students jump start research and understanding of the topics covered in their classes. This is especiallyrelevant to the regular education classes. Classroom Data The teachers that I questioned were asked for some demographic information about their classes. They were also asked about theirstudents learning styles. The following chart contains the information that they supplied. The last thing that the teachers were asked was aboutwhat is lacking in the media center that they could use to supplement their classes or would help the students with research.Classes AP European History Advanced World History Regular World HistoryNumber of Students 24 41 58Male 12 17 38Female 12 24 20Auditory Learners 1 3 5Visual Learners 5 3 7
  • 17. Kinesthetic Learners 0 15 36Tactile Learners 18 20 10Number of Hispanic Students 1 4 20Number of Hmong Students 5 7 7 Activities Used to Teach Standards The following are some activities that could be used to teach the standards that are listed above:Advanced Placement: Since this class is actually titled European History. The students will be given a topic such as France’s economyduring World War I. Then they will be asked to research and write a research paper that describes the country and situation that they havebeen assigned. These papers must show detailed research and correct citations. The length of these research papers must be between 5 and 7pages. The students will be able to choose their own topic with the permission of the instructor. If the topic is not appropriate, then they willbe assigned a topic by their instructor.Advanced: The students will be placed into groups and assigned as specific countries and times. They will be asked to research and present aPowerPoint or other form of a presentation program to the class. This will give the students authority in their class and will help them to claimtheir knowledge. They will be asked to present for 15-20 minutes. Each group will contain three students. Each student will be responsible fora different task. After the group presents, each student in the group will evaluate each of the other students. This will allow them to let theteacher know if each student did equal work on the presentation.Regular: The students will have a map quiz. They will be supplied with a blank map with the outlines of the countries, major rivers andmajor lakes of Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania and South America. They will be asked to fill in all of the countries, major rivers and majorlakes. Than they will be asked to write at least one major fact about each continent.
  • 18. Reviews Most of the reviews that were written about the resources chosen for the order were favorable. There were a few that said that thesource was graphic and not for young children. These sources were about the AIDS epidemic in Africa. I believe that even though thesesources are graphic they are a necessary part of understanding the continent and people of Africa. Overall, the reviews available for thesources chosen for the order are favorable and say that the source is great. That let me know that source would be a valuable addition to themedia center. Consideration File The order that I feel would be beneficial to the students and faculty that have classes that cover the standards listed above follows.There are printed books, ebooks and video resources. I only bought one book in another language because I felt that because the majority ofour student population speaks English fluently, there was not as much a need as I originally thought. I did buy the one resource thoughbecause I also feel that students should be able to read in the language that they are the most comfortable with. Standing in the hallway duringclass change, it is easy to hear at least three different languages. That is proof enough that there are many bilingual students who would beserved well by having a book in their language. Although the standards listed above, some of the books that I decided to purchase are for lower levels of education. The AP teachertold me that one thing that would be beneficial for all of the students in AP, advanced and regular classes would be to buy some resources thatare at a lower level of reading. He said that those types of resources help to jumpstart the students understanding of a topic and their research.So, some of the resources are intended for lower levels of education but are beneficial for high school students to begin learning about a topic.
  • 19. Some of these sources are very expensive, but they will most likely be used as reference materials. There is one set of materials. Thisset includes several books. It is also the most expensive item that I decided to buy. Title Author Date Reading Level PriceAfrica (A True Book Geography - Continents) Mel Friedman 2009 3-6 5.90Animal Geography.
