Summer 2018

TASL Summer Road Trip –East TN
Pellissippi State Community College; June 20, 2018
Designing a Capstone Project for High School Research
Many of Tennessee's schools have a senior project or paper as a graduation requirement.  But what is the school librarian’s role in these capstone projects?  Do we collaborate with teachers to make certain that the research and writing is scholarly and reflects critical thinking?  Do we collaborate with local colleges and universities to provide the bridge or transition to college-level research?  Hannah is the lead senior adviser for the capstone project at The Webb School in Bell Buckle and she will discuss methods, hurdles, and outcomes for her school's program.  This session aligns with the AASL Inquire and Collaborate standards. 

Promoting Reading Culture with Creative Book Displays
Whether you are very creative or do not have a creative bone in your body you will enjoy this workshop.  We will look at each of our individual library spaces and collections to develop displays for the upcoming school year.  We will brainstorm about local happenings, national holidays, and unique themes to return home with a monthly tickler file of ideas for the 2018-19 school years.  In this session, you will sketch plans and use Pinterest so come ready for a hands-on workshop.  This session aligns with the AASL Curate and Engage standards.
