South Pacific Region Pilot Project on School Library Development: Training Programmes for Teachers.
Trask, Margaret; And Others
The Pilot Project on School Library Development has designed two course to train primary and secondary teachers and teacher librarians in the South Pacific Region. Oriented to the needs of the teacher as a library user, the first course seeks to stimulate teachers to encourage students to use library resources for seeking information and for pleasure reading. Seven topics are covered: (1) information, sources and resources; (2) evaluation of information resources and integration in curriculum planning; (3) school library services for teachers; (4) locating information in print and nonprint resources; (5) preparation and use of audiovisual resources; (6) promoting student resource awareness and usage; and (7) stimulating student interest in reading. The second course is designed to provide basic training for student teachers who intend to work as primary or secondary school librarians. The course is divided into six sections: The Role of Information Resources in Teaching and Learning; Information Resources and Services; The School Library, An Overview; Selection and Evaluation of Information Resources for Schools; Using Information Resources; and The School Library--Organization and Management. Self-testing exercises are included for the second course. (THC)
