Advocacy

AASL members Connie Champlin and David Loertscher were published in the March 2003 issue of Principal Leadership, the magazine of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Their article, "Reinvent Your School's Library and Watch Student Academic Achievement Increase," "gently but diligently" reminds principals that "library media centers and the professionals who run them can be powerful forces in integrating technology into teaching and learning." Champlin and Loertscher outline some "first steps" for principals to ensure that the library media center "achieves its potential for improving student learning and developing 21st century skills."

A PDF reprint of the article is currently available on the Indiana Learns Web site.

Received in a couple of e-mails. Unsure of proper attribution, but it is so important I'm posting anyway.
