CASL is helping School Librarians Speak Out
We’ve launched a great new website to help school librarians advocate in a positive manner to save and support school libraries. The CASL Survive and Thrive website provides tools to educate and inform stakeholders about the vital and irreplaceable role that school librarians play in teaching and learning. In order to better communicate to our community members what “21st century skills” are all about, CASL developed “taglines” for the 21st century skills of the Colorado Academic Standards (seen at right). On the site, you will find message templates (sample e-mails, letters, newsletter blurbs, brochures, and even videos) containing the taglines and targeting specific stakeholder audiences in order to promote school librarians as 21st century skills experts. Check out the site and start advocating!
