Event Understanding Leveling Systems

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 01:25 pm

Leveling is used by educators to identify books that match the reading ability of students. While not everyone likes or uses leveling, it is important to understand it. Students may ask for “Q” books, books at 950L or books with 5 AR points. However, inappropriate uses of leveling can violate the Library Bill of Rights. Librarians will learn about the history of readability calculations, some popular leveling systems and databases for finding book levels.

Online Doc Post Annual Report from Linda Ward-Callaghan

by Katherine Todd on Wed, Jul 25, 2012 at 11:36 am

Linda posted this report to the ALSC group.  She can no longer access the ALSC Education Committee group since her term has ended.  I have uploaded the report here so that there is a complete record of all reports related to this committee.

However, I think it would be useful for outgoing chairs to maintain their membership in the groups until all reports have been posted.

      Does the topic offer needed instruction for our members?

      Does the outline of the course/webinar cover the essential points for the topic? 

      Are the learning objectives clear and appropriate for the topic?

      Do you have reservations or suggestions that should be considered before the proposal is accepted by ALSC?

 

3)  I will be completing the forms to take the Committee totally virtual.

4)  Kate Todd will be taking over as Chair July 1st.  Does anyone have topics the committee should address between now and Annual?  Agenda ideas for the following year?
