We, in Washington State have drawn a line in the sand. The decline of school libraries and loss of school librarian positions stops right here, right now. It’s time to reverse the trend – by making it LIT: Library, Information and Technology programs focused on direct and measured impact on student learning.
Embrace the brand (teacher-librarians, LIT programs), re-envision and restructure our programs, and shout it from the rooftops and across the electronic universe. We are essential because information & technology skills instruction, reading advocacy, and information management and services are basic and central to K-12 education in the 21st Century.
Our webinar invites participants to explore the power of our succinct LIT program description and its implications for teacher-librarians, districts and legislative initiatives based on our experience in Washington State.
