Feedback form is now closed.
Our session will combine presentation and interaction among workshop attendees. Participants will actively engage in a “crosswalk” of the AASL standard strands and indicators, and define and detail how the AASL Standards align to their current library instruction. Participants will leave with a template to continue aligning instruction to the standards, a ready to use prepared “persuasive message” to share their administrators, and a AASL standards resource list to continued exploration and personal professional development.

Conferences are always filled with so many wonderful presentations - and so little time to do everything you want to do. Feel free to join at any point that our session is in progress or to "get a taste" and move on to another session. We are flexible and welcome everyone. No matter if you stay for the whole session or a part of it, you will know move about the AASL Standards that are setting the standard for excellence in school libraries across the country.
