Students’ Awareness of Their Library

The American Federation of Teachers ( provided resources to enhance the classroom experience for students and teachers. In American Teacher, there is an article about tapping the school library. I just want to share some of their suggestions and add my two cents.

As a teacher/instructor:

  • Build time into your lesson plan to visit the library or have the librarian attend your classroom
  • Sit in on students’ tutorials/information instructional sessions (confirmation from a teacher about the information shared during the session is a great way to show collaboration between the classroom and library) 
  • Link the library’s website to your classroom website
  • Make sure that the library have enough resources to support your class assignment

What do you think librarians can do to enhance the learning experience for students?
