Too much else to do Strategies
We don’t have the time
Staff will never accept it
We like change if it does not involve alterations
Why change, it’s working ok
You’re right, BUT …
Let’s get back to reality
Let’s sleep on it
You cannot teach an old dog new tricks
I’m retiring next year
It will not work here
We did all right without it
We’re all too busy to do it
Think of the disruption!
Not THAT again
We’ve always done it this wayReluctance to change
How can your school library show that it:
2. Ensuring that your daily efforts put some focus on learning outcomes evaluation that gathers meaningful and systematic evidence on dimensions of teaching and learning that matter to the school and its support community
Gathering evidence in YOUR local school
You are able to provide convincing evidence that answers these questions:
“What differences do my school library and its learning initiatives make to
student learning outcomes?
“What are the differences, the tangible learning outcomes and learning benefits of my school library”?
