How Genrefying Made My Life Easy

A 12th-grade English teacher wanted to promote reading as a lifelong habit. A new (solo) librarian wanted to shake things up a little bit. Together they created an environment that is impacting the entire school. This program will explain the process of genre-fying a fiction collection on your own and how it has drastically enhanced how students choose their books. Session recorded during the 2021 AASL National Conference.
