"One thing that jumped right out at me was that I liked the inquiry approach as compared to "coverage". One thing I would like to see is definition of teacher roles- they label teacher as model and coach, but no mention of teacher as…"

Leslie Maniotes replied to Ernie Cox's discussion Reading with Purpose in the group Inquiry Circles Book Group
"Exactly, Ernie. The librarian is in such a traditional role it is frightening. Books, not the multitude of resources available? The other thing I noticed was that the information skills are another thing that the teacher has to teach. Librarians…"

Greetings Leslie,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
