The School Librarian as Educator. Library Science Text Series.
Wehmeyer, Lillian Biermann
Basic orientation to educational theory and research is provided to further the teaching role of the school librarian. This liberally-illustrated handbook also includes instructions for a variety of games and other motivational devices. Principles of motivation theory outlined in Chapter 2 are given immediate practical application in Chapters 3-5, in which a number of sample thematic boxes and story games are presented. Chapter 6 discusses the central theme of the book, adaptive education, and depicts the school library's limitless potential for meeting individual needs of learners. Succeeding chapters re-evaluate the library skills instruction and suggest ways in which these may be taught within the framework of adaptive education. Independent study is discussed and a complete sample independent study unit is included. Other chapters cover reading research, library discipline, the library environment, and library management. Selected further readings on key topics of the book are listed. (Author/PF)
