Why do we need school librarians?
 

Teacher librarians in Scottsdale are guided by the SUSD Library Media Program Objectives and by the AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner

Teacher librarians support and implement these standards by playing four roles:

Teacher: Teaching skills students need to learn and achieve: literature appreciation, critical use of media, and the application of information literacy skills to all school subjects
Information Specialist: Maintaining access to print, media, and technology collections and providing reference services to students and teachers
Instructional Consultant: Collaborating with teachers to integrate information literacy skills into units and lesson plans. Serving as an educational partner in teaching students, developing curricula, and integrating resources into teaching and learning
Program Manager: Planning and managing the school's library program and library facilities. Seeking, selecting, evaluating, and utilizing print and non-print resources to support the curriculum

Based on material from the Westford (Massachusetts) Public Schools Library Media Centers


Research in nineteen states has demonstrated that students in schools with effective library programs staffed by certificated teacher librarians score higher on standardized reading tests than students in school without those programs. (School Libraries Work - 2006) 

Although no studies have yet been conducted in Arizona, district statistics indicate that SUSD students are not only reading books but also exploring and using digital information sources.

Statistics tell just part of the story. Teacher librarians provide instruction and support in all areas of SUSD curriculum. They collaborate with teachers at their schools to plan lessons that will support our district curriculum. They focus on selecting materials and developing programs to meet unique needs of each of their school communities. And they provide all students with a place to learn and explore independently.
