Literacy: Information, Digital, News, Media…Same S#!@, Different Day!

This session will focus on practical ways school librarians can teach multiple literacies to ensure that learners have the skills necessary to be consumers and creators of information. Whether it is news, digital, information, or media literacy, the new AASL Standards and Key Commitments will assure learners are well-prepared to face an ever-changing landscape. This session will focus on practical teaching ideas, lessons and toolkits that can be employed in secondary school libraries.
