AASL Fall Forum 2010

It isn’t too early to start planning to attend the AASL Fall Forum 2010. "In Focus: The Essentials for 21st-Century Learning," will
be held November 5-6, 2010 in Portland, Oregon. The Fall Forum 2010 will bring together some of the greatest minds in the
library field--Gail Dickinson, Leslie Maniotes and Ross Todd--to help school librarians understand how to guide 21st-century
students toward meaningful learning. Keynote speaker Paige Johnson, global manager of K-12 education for Intel's Corporate
Affairs Group, will discuss the challenge of 21st-century reform from the perspective of the workforce and students. She will help
attendees understand why corporations are interested in 21st-century education. She will also encourage school librarians to make
learning more personalized to include students that may become overwhelmed by the more rigorous standards.

The Fall Forum occurs in the years that AASL does not host a National Conference. For more information about the 2010 Fall
Forum and to register, visit the AASL Web site at Attendees will receive a price break for registering
before Oct. 4. If you are not an AASL member, this would be a great time to join so you can attend.

New AASL President Elected

Carl A. Harvey III, school librarian for North Elementary School, Noblesville, Ind., has been elected president-elect of the
American Association of School Librarians (AASL).

For his election platform, Harvey stated, "I believe the future for our profession lies with involvement. School librarians are
leaders in teaching 21st Century skills; yet, due to budget shortfalls positions are being cut. Being involved is convincing decision
makers that library programs are a good use of scarce dollars. These are unsettling times, but being involved and working together
we can fulfill a vision where school libraries are a necessity in every district and every school."

Harvey is currently a member of AASL's Board of Directors. He served as a chair of AASL's Affiliate Assembly in 2007, and has
served on many other AASL committees. Outside of AASL, he serves as a board member for the Indiana Library Federation and
has authored three publications, including the 2010 release "The 21st Century Elementary Library Media Program."

Harvey's school library program at North Elementary was the recipient of the AASL National School Library Program of the Year
award (NSLPY), previously NSLMPY, in 2007. Of winning NSLPY Harvey says, "To me, my major accomplishment wasn't
really mine at all, but rather a team effort of our entire school. It truly was an example of the hard work of our entire school --
library staff, teachers, administrators, students and parents." His exemplary work as a school librarian has won him numerous
other awards and accolades.

Harvey will serve as president-elect during 2010-2011 under Nancy Everhart, AASL's current president-elect.

                                                     What is AASL?

   The American Association of School Librarians,, a division of the
   American Library Association (ALA), promotes the improvement and extension of
   library services in elementary and secondary schools as a means of strengthening the total
   education program. Its mission is to advocate excellence, facilitate change and develop
   leaders in the school library field.

AASL Announces Summer Online Courses

AASL is offering two online summer courses for school librarians. During the classes librarians will identify problem areas in
their current school library program and develop the techniques and endurance to bring the program into the 21st century. The
courses include:

        Monday, May 31 - Friday, June 25-Making a Place, Making a Case for Read-Alouds: A Powerful Teaching Tool for
        Literacy K-6. Trainers: Christina Dorr and Liz Deskins

        In this 4-week e-course, participants will learn how to infuse literacy skills while continuing to share the passion and
        power of a great read-aloud. The culminating project will be a collaborative lesson plan that incorporates nonfiction read
        alouds with critical thinking strategies into a content area while also including indicators from AASL’s Standards for the
        21st-Century Learner.

        Monday, July 12 - Friday, August 6: The Path to Collaboration: Making it Happen

        This four-week class is designed to help media specialists identify and analyze the factors that contribute to successful
        collaboration with teachers. Topics covered include: the culture of the school, the role of the media specialist, qualities of
        successful leaders, and the various facets of the collaboration process. Media specialists will learn what to bring to the
        collaboration table and how to develop and initiate an action plan to encourage teachers to join them.

                               Updates on Student Expression Bill
                                               Submitted by Karen Buckley
The student expression bill, LB 898, did not move forward this session of the Unicameral. However, Senator Haar has introduced
an interim study, LR 433, to examine the status of student expression in Nebraska. This study was viewed as a positive action,
amid assurances that the bill would be reintroduced in the next legislative session. Supporters of the bill were pleased by the
number of persons who attended the public hearing on the bill to testify for the bill. While this bill is known as the student
expression bill, the bill is designed to provide support also for teachers and administrators supporting student expression.

President-elect Rod Wagner recommended to the board that Frank LoMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center,
be invited to be the featured speaker at the AFCON annual meeting November 6 at Beacon Hill Restaurant in Lincoln. The board
accepted Wagner’s recommendation. The annual membership meeting is open to the public; AFCON board and executive board
meetings are also open to the public.

The AFCON board revised its meeting schedule, with board officers meeting alternating months between full board attendance
and just the executive board. Full membership meets annually.

NEMA is seeking a new representative on the AFCON board. The NEMA liaison is a voting member of the board. In addition to
advocating for academic freedom issues, AFCON also sponsors educational activities, including cosponsoring observances of
Banned Books Week. Since the meetings are open to the public, any NEMA member is welcome to attend aboard meetings. If you
are interested in serving as NEMA’s liaison to AFCON or just learning more about AFCON activities, consider attending a board
member as a guest.

                                 Meet UNO Student Denise Ebeler
                              Submitted by Susan Hubbard, NEMA student liaison

Denise Ebeler is the Library Media Specialist at Prescott Elementary School in her hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, She is a UNO
graduate student working on her library media endorsement. While getting her undergraduate degree from UNL, Denise was able
to spend one of her junior-year semesters studying in Erlangen, Germany. Her endorsements from UNL are in early childhood,
elementary education, and German education.

Denise taught second grade in San Bernardino, California for three years and second and third grade at Clinton Elementary School
in Lincoln before getting her present job as a media specialist for LPS. She has been at her present position for two years.

I asked Denise about the importance of collaboration in her school. She replied, “Our job is about supporting staff and students
with their informational and media needs. We have to communicate with them to know what those needs are. I am fortunate to
work with teachers that are willing to meet during plan days and before or after school as needed.” Denise tells me she has been
working with fourth graders doing research on Nebraska related topics such as state symbols, famous people, and landmarks.

When I asked Denise about her coursework at UNO, she mentioned that she appreciated that each class she took included the
AASL Standards for the 21st Century Learner. She says, “I feel like I know what my objectives are because of the emphasis and
expectation that we incorporate these into our lessons.” She also mentioned the use of technology and how she is planning to have
her students blog about the Golden Sower nominees next year.

What qualities should a 21st Century School Librarian possess? Denise told me, “It has been a surprise to find out how many hats
a school librarian must wear. I think the first priority is to be a great teacher of information literacy skills.” She mentioned
organizational, communication, and research skills, as well as having the best digital information available for our students, as
being important. Denise said, “One of the most fun aspects of my job is planning special events such as Read Across America
Day, our used book exchange, a Book Character Parade, summer library, and author visits.”

When I asked Denise about her advice for those interested in becoming library media specialists, she mentioned, “If you love
working with children and reading, this is the career for you.”
