No notes for slide
  • Probably can’t spend time on all slides in Durango. One part to skip for Durango is talking tips for admin. - or just briefly show it.
  • This presentation is 2 parts: 1 st half details about changes in our program and how to participate and/or apply for H.E. Recognition 2 nd half are tips/strategies to help you incrementally improve on the rubric and just help you be better/essential at your job so that you can positively affect student achievement scores. (That is our bottom line).
  • This is our transition slide from old to new. Will explain why “Highly Effective” in the power point. This used to be the joke from my staffs about their perception of power libraries. They really didn’t get it. They thought it was more about multi-tasking well, I think.
  • Just review the “directions’ link here Look at competencies briefly after this. Can briefly show the “goals” link, if needed. Look at application link if needed, too, but don’t explain as in-depth as we have been. Explain how performance indicators inform your decision of which to circle.) Allow time here for questions
  • Show the goals page – stress it’s not about us judging but, rather, help you. Can we match a coach, a mentor, do a workshop for your district? This is what I feel like when I self-assess. And while I was an HP librarian at both schools, I wouldn’t have rated H.E. in all areas. We have set the bar high—intentionally. We’re setting the bar high for our students/teachers with the new standards—we have to doubly prove ourselves.
  • This is Robert Hammond, our commissioner, who will be at the school board meeting to recognize you! WE’LL SHOW INCENTIVES FOR PARTICIPATION AT END OF THIS PRESENTATION Next part of presentation shows you ideas of how mentors, coaches, etc. can help you, and stresses the expertise we’ve gathered from H.P. librarians.
  • Get input here. Is this possible? Right now, it’s just a program evaluation.
  • These are CDE bigwigs and key players receiving a huge grant
  • CAS is CO Academic Stan Do you know the 21 st Century Skills? C² S I²
  • How does this program show correlation to UIP/SIP (Has you create school-aligned goals)
  • Leadership is our opportunity for this scary time.
  • Look at the “Why Bother” link here
  • Go over timeline here.—CAS is Colorado Academic Standards
  • Look at 2 handouts Take a few minutes to go over the benchmarks for students—Questions? Now, let’s look at an actual standard. What 21 st c. skills do you see? Highlight, pair share, and share out.
  • What 21 st century standards do you see in this video? Now look at standards - what 21 st century skills do you identify in there?
  • Let’s take a look at the ______________ sheet. With a partner, look for and mark 21 st century skills
  • Ideas: Upload math websites to our wikis and do a 15 min. presentation at the staff meeting. Align lessons with math goals for that grade for the month (choose story like “A grain of Rice” and do math lessons—co-teach with teachers on this. What kinds of interactive things can they measure in the library for the measurement unit? Or the patterns unit?
  • Be on the lookout for CASL advocacy initiative information!
  • Think pair share – Record answers on “corkboard.me” or typewith.me What is it specifically that you are prepared to offer that would break the stereotype and add recognizable evidence of the critical role school library programs and librarians play in school improvement?
