Creating A Dynamic Library At The Heart Of Your Academy
Key Roles of the School Library
• Supporting teaching and learning
• Providing accommodation, resources,
  support, expertise and knowledge in support
  of the curriculum
• Developing independent learners
• Developing information literacy skills
• Promoting reading for pleasure
A dynamic school library:
is at the heart of a school learning community. It can provide a
flexible place for learning where project work, individual study
and group research can take place. [It] can provide young people
with the means to freely pursue subjects which fully engage
them, and promote wider reading. Good libraries can also
support teachers in adopting a broad range of teaching
strategies.
                                                                          Charles Clarke

‘It is important for headteachers, senior managers and librarians
to work together to develop library provision that benefits the
whole school and it’s pupils’

                                                   Good School Libraries; Making a Difference to Leaning
                                                                                    (Guardian 21/3/2006
In the most effective schools:

•well trained specialist librarians had a positive impact on
teaching and learning.
•librarians were regarded as key middle managers and
encouraged to work closely with other members of staff.
•pupil librarians were also seen as an essential part of the best
library teams.
•librarians used a wide range of effective strategies to promote
reading, planned lessons alongside subject teachers and used
different ways to evaluate the impact of the library on pupils’
learning.
•libraries were well funded

 “Good school libraries: making a difference to learning”(Ofsted, March 2006)
Weaknesses identified:

•funding for libraries varied significantly

•use by pupils once they entered key stage 4 declined

•too few opportunities for pupils to carry out research or work
independently - many pupils struggled to locate and make use of
information.




Good school libraries: making a difference to learning”(Ofsted, March 2006)
Actions to improve:
•increase use of the library by teachers and pupils throughout the day,
especially Key Stage 4 pupils
•develop the quality and coherence of programmes for teaching information
literacy to provide better continuity, challenge and progression in pupils’
learning
•promote pupils’ independent study by more effective use of the library
•improve evaluation of the library
•Those responsible for advising and supporting schools in developing their
libraries (SLS?) need to work with SLT, as well as librarians, in order to develop
provision and integrate developments with other whole-school priorities.

Which one are
           you?




What skills do you feel you need as a school librarian?
Inspection teams in all parts of the UK are keen to see:

•Well staffed, resourced & used libraries
•Clear curriculum links between LRC and curriculum staff who
work in partnership
•Effective use of library ICT
•Knowledgeable & motivated LRC staff actively promoting
effective use, information literacy & reading
•LRC links to out-of-hours learning
•A library portfolio of evidence of LRC work: copies of policies, the
LRC development plan, data from performance measurement,
examples of work done by pupils who used LRC resources and
guidance.

 “Information Matters: developing information literacy skills through the secondary school LRC”
 SLA, 2005
Strategies: ICT
    “Young people’s engagement with ICT facilitates and motivates
     literacy rather than displacing reading” (Elaine Millard, Differently
     literate)

•    Email and Video – conferencing
•    Websites
•    Accelerated Reader
•    Blogs and wikis- pbwikis, wikispaces, blogspot,
     wordpress,edublogs
•    VLEs and intranets- forums, discussions, votes, quizzes,
•    E-books and audio books
•    Podcasts- Audacity, Voicethread
•    RSS feeds
So what is Web 2.0?
• Uses the web as a platform rather than having to buy
  and install software ( googledocs., Slideshare, )
• Encourages sharing, and portability of data –
  Delicious and Furl, Flickr, Youtube etc
• Encourages creating data – blogs, ( weblogs-
  blogger),social networking, ( Facebook,
  Myspace)photograph sharing, (Flickr)collaborative
  resources ( wikis)
• Allows information to come to you – RSS feeds

Creating A Dynamic Library At The Heart Of Your Academy
Strategies:
Create a Reading Culture


     “The school library is ideally
      placed to bring reading for
           pleasure to life”

  Paul Kropp “The Reading Solution” 1995
Creating a Reading Culture
Why read?
• Gateway to learning, personal and social
  skills
• Develop imagination
• Stress relief
• Connects us to others
• Creative
• Helps you make sense of yourself and the
  world around you
Creating a Reading Culture
• PIRLS - Reading all over the world
“ Children who read most frequently for fun were also those
   with the highest score on PIRLS”
• PISA 2000 - Reading for change
“Being more enthusiastic about reading and a frequent
  reader was more of an advantage, on its own, than having
  well-educated parents in good jobs.”
• Research shows that reading for enjoyment is “more
  important for children’s educational success than their
  family’s socio-economic status”
(OECD, 2002)

  Progression in International Reading and Literacy
  Programme for International Student Assessment
  Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
Creating a Reading Culture
• School inspectors in 2006 highlighted the fact
  that a fifth of 11 year olds could not read
  properly- 150,000 children. These students are at
  a disadvantage in accessing the curriculum
• Although “Reading for Change” placed young
  people in UK seventh out of 33 countries
  surveyed in terms of functional literacy skills
  there was a decline in attitudes to reading as
  children get older and a long record of
  underachievement for those with reading
  difficulties

WHY?
• Lack of information about Year 6 reading
  experiences
• Evidence of students’ academic regression by
  end of Year 7
• Build relationships between key partners
• Empower students
• Encourage reading for pleasure

• The enthusiasm of librarians, teachers and
  pupils
• Nearly 1,000 pupils involved
• Nearly 1,000 reviews posted on the website
• Over a third of our Year 7 intake involved
Teachers’ comments
“I thought it was perfect! What a fantastic way to end
   year 6”
“Pupils’ reading speed increased with the children
   trying to outdoing each other”
“It opened my eyes to the benefits of online blogging
   and the blog motivated them to read more”
“I got to read some interesting books and got to know
   the librarian and teachers at Bacons. We are really
   interested in doing some teacher exchange visits for
   next year”
“ It was great to meet the primary teachers and
  discuss the children’s reading. They wanted to know
  about our Year 7 curriculum and I learnt a lot about
  Year 6 teaching.”

“ It was wonderful. All the children were motivated to
  read more. We would like to explore video
  conferencing for next year.”
We would like to develop…
• teacher exchanges so that year 6 and 7 teachers
  share their curriculum
• video conferencing so that more schools can be
  involved and more contact can be made between
  teachers and pupils
• the role of the year 7 pupils in presenting the
  shortlist to the primary schools through
  presentations
• Cross- curricular links with Art and Drama depts.
• www.southwarkbookaward.org.uk
Strategies:
     Links with others: Primary Schools

• Transition starts before the end of Year 6

                                                     Tutor Group
Advantages?
• Fiction and non-fiction texts - wide range 8,000 titles
• Networkable so accessible throughout the school
• May tie in with Library Management system
• Helps guide and motivate students to find books they will
  enjoy. Kids enjoy quizzes and computers.
• Levels now match NC levels
• You can write your own quizzes – or get students to do this
• Adds to a school’s Reading Culture? Encourages allocated time
  for reading in the school curriculum. Raises profile of the
  library.
Disadvantages?
• Lacking in quizzes for lower secondary years. Delay in writing quizzes for
  new books. More aimed at primaries
• Expensive as a package and in resources
• Need full involvement of English dept, tutors and Learning Support
• Labels the kids
• Some of the AR Book levels are questionable. Seems to be a purely
  mechanical assessment of each book based on words per line/per page
  rather than content/concepts
• Points allocated for different length/level of books seem unfair
• Short term rewards. Does it really motivate students? Is it just a tick-box
  exercise which appeals to teachers/educationalists dominated by
  assessment/levels etc
Issues to consider
 •Time and cost setting up the scheme. Who will pay for it?
•Introduce in a small way or launch across the whole school?
                    •How many quizzes?
  •Need to relaunch each year with new students and new
                           staff?
         •Launch via English dept or tutor system?
   •Does it improve long term reading and critical literacy
                          abilities?
       •Might the money be better spent elsewhere?

STRATEGIES:
  INFORMATION LITERACY
Information literacy is the ability to know when there is a need for
information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate and effectively use
that information for the task in hand.
                            National Forum on Information Literacy, USA 2005




The school library offers learning services, book and resources that
enable all members of the school community to become critical
thinkers and effective users of information in all formats and media.
                                    IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto
INFORMATION LITERACY

The school library can:
• provide an environment suitable for group and independent
   research;
• provide a wide range of resources with opportunities
   to browse and discover;
• stimulate and support independent learning.
• take a lead role in teaching information literacy across the
   curriculum;
• collaborate with teaching colleagues to embed information
   literacy across the curriculum;
• provide targeted teaching for pupils and INSET for staff

   School libraries – Making a difference
   (DfES/www.schoollibrariesadvocacy.org.uk, 2004)
INFORMATION LITERACY

Librarians can:

•Plan and run induction sessions- Yr 7, 10, 12
•Work with teaching staff to help students improve research
skills
•Planning research tasks in collaboration with teachers
•Produce website and resource lists to support teaching
•Work with individual pupils
•Encourage students to evaluate sources
•Lead lessons on plagiarism, referencing, bibliographies, citation
methods for staff and students
So how do you make the library
    dynamic and at the heart of your
              Academy?
• Work with others and enlist their support
• Support from SMT.
• Ensure the library appears in key school documents SEF, SIP
  etc
• Money- look for funding
• Seize all opportunities and don’t get left out of the loop.
  Become an expert and indisposable.
• Use teachers’ techniques - whole school assemblies,
  presentations
• Have a lot of energy and commitment! And a self belief!

Creating A Dynamic Library At The Heart Of Your Academy

  • 1. Creating a dynamic library at the heart of your academy Laura Taylor and Pauline Guiney Librarians, Academies Lead Practitioners for Librarianship City of London Academy and Capital City Academy
  • 2. So which is your situation?
  • 4. Key Roles of the School Library • Supporting teaching and learning • Providing accommodation, resources, support, expertise and knowledge in support of the curriculum • Developing independent learners • Developing information literacy skills • Promoting reading for pleasure
  • 5. A dynamic school library: is at the heart of a school learning community. It can provide a flexible place for learning where project work, individual study and group research can take place. [It] can provide young people with the means to freely pursue subjects which fully engage them, and promote wider reading. Good libraries can also support teachers in adopting a broad range of teaching strategies. Charles Clarke Improve your library: a self-evaluation process for secondary school libraries (DfES 2004) ‘It is important for headteachers, senior managers and librarians to work together to develop library provision that benefits the whole school and it’s pupils’ Miriam Rosen OFSTED’s Director of Education Good School Libraries; Making a Difference to Leaning (Guardian 21/3/2006
  • 6. In the most effective schools: •well trained specialist librarians had a positive impact on teaching and learning. •librarians were regarded as key middle managers and encouraged to work closely with other members of staff. •pupil librarians were also seen as an essential part of the best library teams. •librarians used a wide range of effective strategies to promote reading, planned lessons alongside subject teachers and used different ways to evaluate the impact of the library on pupils’ learning. •libraries were well funded “Good school libraries: making a difference to learning”(Ofsted, March 2006)
  • 7. Weaknesses identified: •funding for libraries varied significantly •use by pupils once they entered key stage 4 declined •too few opportunities for pupils to carry out research or work independently - many pupils struggled to locate and make use of information. Good school libraries: making a difference to learning”(Ofsted, March 2006)
  • 8. Actions to improve: •increase use of the library by teachers and pupils throughout the day, especially Key Stage 4 pupils •develop the quality and coherence of programmes for teaching information literacy to provide better continuity, challenge and progression in pupils’ learning •promote pupils’ independent study by more effective use of the library •improve evaluation of the library •Those responsible for advising and supporting schools in developing their libraries (SLS?) need to work with SLT, as well as librarians, in order to develop provision and integrate developments with other whole-school priorities. “Good school libraries: making a difference to learning”(Ofsted, March 2006)
  • 9. Which one are you? What skills do you feel you need as a school librarian?
  • 10. Inspection teams in all parts of the UK are keen to see: •Well staffed, resourced & used libraries •Clear curriculum links between LRC and curriculum staff who work in partnership •Effective use of library ICT •Knowledgeable & motivated LRC staff actively promoting effective use, information literacy & reading •LRC links to out-of-hours learning •A library portfolio of evidence of LRC work: copies of policies, the LRC development plan, data from performance measurement, examples of work done by pupils who used LRC resources and guidance. “Information Matters: developing information literacy skills through the secondary school LRC” SLA, 2005
  • 11. Strategies: ICT “Young people’s engagement with ICT facilitates and motivates literacy rather than displacing reading” (Elaine Millard, Differently literate) • Email and Video – conferencing • Websites • Accelerated Reader • Blogs and wikis- pbwikis, wikispaces, blogspot, wordpress,edublogs • VLEs and intranets- forums, discussions, votes, quizzes, • E-books and audio books • Podcasts- Audacity, Voicethread • RSS feeds
  • 12. So what is Web 2.0? • Uses the web as a platform rather than having to buy and install software ( googledocs., Slideshare, ) • Encourages sharing, and portability of data – Delicious and Furl, Flickr, Youtube etc • Encourages creating data – blogs, ( weblogs- blogger),social networking, ( Facebook, Myspace)photograph sharing, (Flickr)collaborative resources ( wikis) • Allows information to come to you – RSS feeds
  • 15. Some Web 2.0 tools to explore? •www.philb.com- Phil Bradley- alias the guru! •http://webtools4u2use.wikispaces.com •http://schoollibrarylearning2.blogspot.com/- 23 things to try •www.pageflakes.com- RSS feeds ( Really Simple Syndication) •http://delicious.com •www.wordle.net •www.voicethread.com •www.rollyo.com •www.slideshare.net •www.flickr.com •www.youtube.com •http://issuu.com •https://widgets.amazon.com/ •www.kn.pacbell.com/wired/fil/- Filamentality •www.fronter.com/southwark - in London replacing the LgfL.

  • 23. Strategies: Create a Reading Culture “The school library is ideally placed to bring reading for pleasure to life” Paul Kropp “The Reading Solution” 1995
  • 24. Creating a Reading Culture Why read? • Gateway to learning, personal and social skills • Develop imagination • Stress relief • Connects us to others • Creative • Helps you make sense of yourself and the world around you
  • 25. Creating a Reading Culture • PIRLS - Reading all over the world “ Children who read most frequently for fun were also those with the highest score on PIRLS” • PISA 2000 - Reading for change “Being more enthusiastic about reading and a frequent reader was more of an advantage, on its own, than having well-educated parents in good jobs.” • Research shows that reading for enjoyment is “more important for children’s educational success than their family’s socio-economic status” (OECD, 2002) Progression in International Reading and Literacy Programme for International Student Assessment Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
  • 26. Creating a Reading Culture • School inspectors in 2006 highlighted the fact that a fifth of 11 year olds could not read properly- 150,000 children. These students are at a disadvantage in accessing the curriculum • Although “Reading for Change” placed young people in UK seventh out of 33 countries surveyed in terms of functional literacy skills there was a decline in attitudes to reading as children get older and a long record of underachievement for those with reading difficulties
  • 27. Health Educational Costs costs: special Costs needs support of crime Very Poor Educational Literacy Cost of costs: unemployment behaviour, and low wages exclusion, truancy
  • 28. Creating a Reading Culture: How do you go about it? • Reading Challenges, trails or journeys • Carnegie Shadowing and other Book Awards • Book Boxes, reading mornings, review magazines, book sales, assemblies, rewards • Bookweeks –Big Reads, World Book Day, and other national events • Reading Clubs/Groups – staff and students, reading Buddies

We are really interested in doing some teacher exchange visits for next year”
  • 45. “ It was great to meet the primary teachers and discuss the children’s reading. They wanted to know about our Year 7 curriculum and I learnt a lot about Year 6 teaching.” “ It was wonderful. All the children were motivated to read more. We would like to explore video conferencing for next year.”
  • 46. We would like to develop… • teacher exchanges so that year 6 and 7 teachers share their curriculum • video conferencing so that more schools can be involved and more contact can be made between teachers and pupils • the role of the year 7 pupils in presenting the shortlist to the primary schools through presentations • Cross- curricular links with Art and Drama depts. • www.southwarkbookaward.org.uk
  • 47.

  • 52. May 2008 Students in 7B have passed over 100 quizzes. Well done! Year 7 Star Reader Quizzes Passed Number of Quizzes Passed 120 106 100 94 83 76 80 60 39 37 36 36 40 20 0 7A 7B 7C 7D 7E 7F 7G 7H Tutor Group
  • 53. Advantages? • Fiction and non-fiction texts - wide range 8,000 titles • Networkable so accessible throughout the school • May tie in with Library Management system • Helps guide and motivate students to find books they will enjoy. Kids enjoy quizzes and computers. • Levels now match NC levels • You can write your own quizzes – or get students to do this • Adds to a school’s Reading Culture? Encourages allocated time for reading in the school curriculum. Raises profile of the library.
  • 54. Disadvantages? • Lacking in quizzes for lower secondary years. Delay in writing quizzes for new books. More aimed at primaries • Expensive as a package and in resources • Need full involvement of English dept, tutors and Learning Support • Labels the kids • Some of the AR Book levels are questionable. Seems to be a purely mechanical assessment of each book based on words per line/per page rather than content/concepts • Points allocated for different length/level of books seem unfair • Short term rewards. Does it really motivate students? Is it just a tick-box exercise which appeals to teachers/educationalists dominated by assessment/levels etc
  • 55. Issues to consider •Time and cost setting up the scheme. Who will pay for it? •Introduce in a small way or launch across the whole school? •How many quizzes? •Need to relaunch each year with new students and new staff? •Launch via English dept or tutor system? •Does it improve long term reading and critical literacy abilities? •Might the money be better spent elsewhere?

  • 57. STRATEGIES: INFORMATION LITERACY Information literacy is the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate and effectively use that information for the task in hand. National Forum on Information Literacy, USA 2005 The school library offers learning services, book and resources that enable all members of the school community to become critical thinkers and effective users of information in all formats and media. IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto
  • 58. INFORMATION LITERACY The school library can: • provide an environment suitable for group and independent research; • provide a wide range of resources with opportunities to browse and discover; • stimulate and support independent learning. • take a lead role in teaching information literacy across the curriculum; • collaborate with teaching colleagues to embed information literacy across the curriculum; • provide targeted teaching for pupils and INSET for staff School libraries – Making a difference (DfES/www.schoollibrariesadvocacy.org.uk, 2004)
  • 59. INFORMATION LITERACY Librarians can: •Plan and run induction sessions- Yr 7, 10, 12 •Work with teaching staff to help students improve research skills •Planning research tasks in collaboration with teachers •Produce website and resource lists to support teaching •Work with individual pupils •Encourage students to evaluate sources •Lead lessons on plagiarism, referencing, bibliographies, citation methods for staff and students
  • 60. So how do you make the library dynamic and at the heart of your Academy? • Work with others and enlist their support • Support from SMT. • Ensure the library appears in key school documents SEF, SIP etc • Money- look for funding • Seize all opportunities and don’t get left out of the loop. Become an expert and indisposable. • Use teachers’ techniques - whole school assemblies, presentations • Have a lot of energy and commitment! And a self belief!
