Join a professional association. You should show evidence of membership in either AASL (American Association of School Librarians) and/or CSLA (California School Library Association) or some other association of professionals dealing with school libraries.
Contribute to, and participate in http://knowville.org
by editing several activities in Knowville and contributing one fun activity that stimulates reading, viewing, listening, writing, or doing.
Additional Assignment 3: Attendance at Class
Be sure to attend and participate in class on Elluminate. Attendance is mandatory from the standpoint that activities done in class will add to your grade and there is no makeup for these activities. For attending and participating in a class session you will receive 10 points. If you cannot attend a class, then you can retrieve and view the recording. If you view the recording and email the grad assistant your contribution or reaction to the topics discussed, then you will receive 5 points for that class. If this is not received within a week of the class, you will receive a zero for that class participation.
Additional Assignment 4: Grant Writing
Write a grant (or show that you have already written one, or make major progress in writing one); assist in the writing of a grant; or demonstrate that you have already written a grant. One way to fulfill this assignment is to write a grant for the Laura Bush Foundation at http://www.laurabushfoundation.org/foundation.html. With the change in administration, one wonders if the Laura Bush Foundation is going to continue. Because this foundation is targeting funds only for schools in poverty, you might have to adopt a school (but don't do one for a school that is not committed to having a full time library media teacher). Another way is to write a grant for your PTA to fund LMC programs/materials, or a grant for a local charitable group. In order to facilitate this, discussion should occur in the comments section of the blog.
Additional Assignment 5: Assessment Measure
Build and test at least one measure for linking the school library media program to achievement. This can be done in your own school library, or can be planned if you are not currently employed.
