Thanks to the IFLS Youth Services librarians who have worked hard to crowd-source two documents, one for families switching to homeschooling (private, home-baseed education), another for families who are switching to virtual public school due to the pandemic. These are organic, slightly messy resources that are designed for librarians to use to help answer reference questions, create smaller resource lists, and so on. They are editable Google Documents, so I’m not going to link to them here, but let me know if you want access to them (and then you can bookmark them).
TeachingBooks, available to all Wisconsin residents thanks to Badgerlink, has many offerings that might help teachers/parents and the librarians who support them. Check out a few:
- A series of 20 minute webinars about a variety of topics, including using TeachingBooks to make booklists and provide readers advisory.
- 408 Readers Theater scripts for a variety of books and reading levels (this could happen over Zoom for sure!)
- Book discussion guides!
- Resources for Author and Illustrator studies!
