Readers' Advisory for Children and Young Adults
An Instructional Session by Tanya Rogoschewsky
Reader's Advisory is one of the most important aspects of librarian work. Reader's advisory helps to connect patrons with the library collection. Francis K. Drury described it as matching the right reader with the right book at the right time. But this is not as simple as it may seem.
This website displays a digital version of an instructional presentation for LIS 526 , Instructional Strategies for Library and Information Professionals. The assignment required that students create a presentation which taught a particular tool or skill. The objective of this assignment was to develop experience in organizing and conducting instructional sessions including the development of a lesson plan, handout materials and student exercises.
The topic for my session was achieving successful reader's advisory focusing on available print tools. The target audience was elementary school teachers, librarians and library volunteers. Through the links on the left, you can access various sections of the presentation.
This website was created to fulfill the capping requirements, LIS 600, of the Master of Library and Information Studies from the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta.
