Student as Citizens: Teaching Critical Civic Literacy Skills in the Library
"Student as Citizens" (Sarah Levin)
School and teen services librarians play a key role in youth civic development. Sarah Levin is a strong proponent of critical literacy education through service-learning (for more details see her article "Student as Citizens: Teaching Critical Civic Literacy Skills in the Library," Knowledge Quest, Volume 44, No. 5, pp. 23-25). Intrigued by the Ten Questions, she is applying them to her service learning project at the Urban School of San Francisco, where she works as a school librarian.

Sarah Levin designed a panel session with Chaebong Nam, a postdoc fellow at Harvard, for the 2017 American Association of School Librarians Conference slated for November in Phoenix, Arizona. In this senssion, Sarah will share her experiences, lessons, and insights learned from her experimentation with the Ten Questions. Chaebong and Sara will talk about how practitioners and academics can work together in a reciprocal and mutually beneficial relationship. 

More stories will be updated soon. See a related piece of news, Exploring Our Foundations in Times of Change that introduced the Ten Questions’ session at the 2017 American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting & Exhibitions. The conference took place on January 23, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
