A new venture for Buchlady!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I am excited to tell you about a new project I’ve taken on.  I’ll be writing a regular feature for the folks at Teachers First.  (I have blogged about their site and their free webinars before.  A great resource for teachers!)

The idea is to provide information and resources to teachers who find themselves in the unfortunate situation of being without a teacher librarian/library media specialist because of budget cuts.

I am planning to alternate between suggested read-alouds for various grade level clusters, and articles or lesson plans around information literacy.  The current article is called “Gifts of Character” and centers around suggested read-alouds for this season of giving–not holiday books, but books that bring to light the traits of generosity, benevolence, philanthropy, and kindness. Check it out!

I would welcome any suggestions you might have for future topics, and PLEASE pass along this resource for any teacher friends you might have around the U.S. who could use this kind of help.
