Navigating the Library Slopes: Dispositional Shifts in the "National School Library Standards"
Cromartie, Kathy; Burns, Elizabeth
Knowledge Quest, v47 n5 p78-83 May-Jun 2019
To gather, contribute, connect, be a creative force, defend, and guide are demanding dispositions that make an excellent school library professional. School librarians use these dispositions like poles of support as they glide down the slopes of student learning and curriculum. They leverage their roles of teacher and librarian like skis giving them direction and momentum to traverse the slopes of academic knowledge and skills learners must navigate. This article discusses the "patterns of acts" or dispositions that are required in order to achieve the growth mindset that school librarians are challenged to embrace through the "National School Library Standards for Learners, School Librarians, and School Libraries."
