research themes
Research Themes
  • Linking school achievement to libraries
  • Teaching strategies that teacher-librarians can use when teaching alone or in collaboration with a classroom teacher to produce learners who are able to compete in a global world. Present students with a task that requires them to place articles on the opinion line as taught. Give the students a unique problem to solve where the technique taught might be one key in the solution to the problem. Assess their ability to encounter this novel problem in a new situation.

  • Created a website dedicated to teachers researching the effects of collaboration on student achievement
  • Hosts a research institute called “Treasure Mountain”
    • Treasure Mt. is a group of school library researchers and practitioners that met beginning in 1989 in conjunction with the AASL National Conference in Salt Lake City. This group has met irregularly, usually in conjunction with AASL national conferences thirteen times over the years and has usually been organized by David Loertscher and Blanche Woolls, although Danny Calison has organized several. It is a place where news of research about the school library media field is disseminated and where news of upcoming events is posted.

    • Advocacy for School Library Media Teachers
  • http://knowville.org/
    • Knowville is a world-wide initiative challenging the children and teens  to: Read a billion books, Write a billion books, Do a billion projects.
    • The increasing need for world-class education to enable each child and teen to work and live in a global society requires more than just directives and testing. A critical factor is the motivation of children and teens to understand that they are preparing for a world-wide challenge, and that to be all they can be, education and literacy is a life-long endeavor. Knowville provides a space akin to the world of gaming where participants can build personal goals, issue challenges, and participate in a global effort to raise literacy and learning.

    • Link to article on collaboration. He refers to many of the research assignments teachers are taught to give to students “bird units.” I love that term. Bird units are assignments that set students up to copy and paste information instead of think critically about the facts they gather.

    • This is his personal website that he uses for teaching classes and for keeping up with Action Research Projects.
