PYP and the Teacher Librarian: Job Like Day

PYP TEACHER LIBRARIAN: JOB LIKE DAY
Slide3

 

 

 

 

 

 

The job of the Teacher Librarian in a PYP school is hard to explain to someone who is not familiar with a contemporary library in an educational setting.

This library does not look like the cliched ‘read a book’ to children and discuss it situation. This is just one component to the learning engagements that will occur.

PYP Teacher Librarians  are adding value to the teaching and learning experiences of those in the school community.

The library and the role of the Teacher Librarian  has reading and literature promotion embedded in the teaching and learning at the core.

It is also is about classroom teaching, planning, collaboration, mentoring and training.

It does include all the Essential Elements of the PYP, just like a PYP classroom teacher has to consider  BUT it also is about visioning, resourcing, budgeting, collection management AND changing culture and attitudes.

It is a role that embraces change and challenge.

It is about Educational Leadership!

Above all it is about supporting and challenging others to be life-long learners and supporting them on the learning journey.

St Andrews will host a ‘Job like day’ later in the term.

This below is just a snippet of the what the day beholds.
