LaJuana Ezzard- Media Specialist
The CSKYWLA Media Center is on a flexible schedule which means that library services are provided as needed. Classes and students do not have to visit the library at a scheduled time; instead, they visit as they need information or services. This is the most effective way to serve everyone within the school community. Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning states flexible scheduling as an essential program aspect for school library media centers. This method also enables collaboration between the classroom teacher and the library media specialist to take place. The teacher brings a knowledge of content/subject and student needs and the library media specialist contributes his/her knowledge of resources, technology, and strategies that may be employed to help students achieve higher levels of information literacy. This cooperative planning integrates information skills and materials into the curriculum that encourages critical thinking and inquiry.
