Hi Jan! Hope this finds you well and well and well!!!! I’m just glad the semester’s on the wane.

Since the theme is collaboration, I was thinking about doing a presentation that frankly I just did (but to thunderous applause)! It’s about scaffolding and library instruction….What we can learn from talking to high school librarians. · · · Name Kellian Clink Minnesota State University, Mankato Reference Librarian/Assoc Prof

About your program: · Program title Transitions: Scaffolding research skills, building bridges, creating new knowledge. · Program description Kellian will share her impressions garnered through her conversations with high school librarians.

Kellian will share what she learned from studying Minnesota’s Department of Education websites about the realities of high school media centers. She will talk about common features of high school media centers’ websites. She will relate her observations about high school reference collections, classrooms, and databases. What can we assume about students’ prior

experiences with research and what do we need to introduce as wholly new ground when we do college-level library instruction? · 3 Program goals or objectives: Have librarians think about the places they can look to understand their incoming student body better. Have librarians think about the different ways they might approach teaching about familiar concepts vs teaching about new concepts. Have librarians think about the concept of scaffolding as an educational construct. · Appropriate track(s): Library Services
