31 Instructions for Interns: Currently Working as Librarians Even though you are currently working as a school librarian, you need to follow the majority of the instructions in this handbook. However, there are a few steps in the intern process that will differ for you: 1) You will not need to complete a supervising librarian application. Either your principal or a district library coordinator will assess you at the end of the semester. Please provide the name of the supervisor who will complete your evaluation at the end of the semester using Tk20 to the Internship Coordinator when you make application for internship. 2) After completing a collaborative lesson a collaborating teacher will be required to assess you. 3) Your journal entries will differ slightly in content and form from those required of a classroom teacher who is an intern. Follow the guidelines below. Journal Entries for Interns: Currently Working as Librarians During one semester a librarian s tasks and responsibilities will vary and will be numerous. ALA/AASL Standards for Initial Preparation of School Librarians provides a framework for these tasks and responsibilities. To be able to evaluate your competence in five standards which include twenty elements, you will need to choose at least one task or responsibility which demonstrates your understanding of the AASL Standards. In other words, you will demonstrate your competence in each of the following standards: Standard 1: Teaching for Learning 1.1 Knowledge of Learners and Learning 1.2 Effective and Knowledgeable Teacher 1.3 Instructional Partner 1.4 Integration of Twenty first Century Skills and Learning Standards Standard 2: Literacy and Reading 2.1 Literature 2.2 Reading Promotion 2.3 Respect for Diversity 2.4 Literacy Strategies Standard 3: Information and Knowledge 3.1 Efficient and Ethical Information seeking Behavior 3.2 Access to Information 3.3 Information Technology 31

32 3.4 Research and Knowledge Creation Standard 4: Advocacy and Leadership 4.1 Networking with the Library Community 4.2 Professional Development 4.3 Leadership 4.4 Advocacy Standard 5: Program Management and Administration 5.1 Collections 5.2 Professional Ethics 5.3 Personnel, Funding, and Facilities 5.4 Strategic Planning and Assessment To view a more detailed explanation of the above standards and their elements visit ndards_with_rubrics_and_statements_ pdf Therefore, you will submit at least four major journal entries describing and documenting your activities and responsibilities. (Ask your supervising professor for due dates.) Since you are in a library every day of the week, it will be easy for you to accumulate 130 hours. Your hours should be divided among the five standards and their elements. You might have only one activity in one category but two or three in another one. Choose responsibilities and activities that are significant ones. Avoid counting repetitious activities, such as shelving books for ten hours. Please provide thorough descriptions and evaluations of the activities you chose. Follow the Template and Example for Journal Entries for Interns Currently Working as Librarians. 32

This includes identifying and developing solutions to physical, social, and intellectual barriers if they exist. Use evidence based, action research or other research strategies to collect data.

Model digital citizenship regarding intellectual freedom, intellectual property, and the right to privacy. Other: Description of Activity: Description of Activity: Planning for the Book Fair began last spring at the Texas Library Association Annual Conference when I met with Scholastic Book Fair representatives and scheduled the Book Fair. I followed these steps to complete the Book Fair: 1) Arranged a schedule for all classes to preview the book fair. 2) Arranged a schedule for all classes to visit the book fair and make purchases. 3) Scheduled parent volunteers to help. 4) Scheduled to be open on Thursday evening during an Open House. 5) Sent flyers home with children announcing the fair and providing lists and prices of books. 6) Held several contests to encourage reading and building home collections. 7) Promoted books that would be available for purchase during the book fair using strategies that supported classroom reading and lifelong learning. 8) Received books and re arranged library furniture to accommodate rolling shelves. 9) Children, parents, and teachers attended the fair during one week. 35

36 10) Selected books for the library s use that reflected the diverse developmental, cultural, social, and linguistic needs of our community. 11) The week following the fair paperwork was completed and sent to Scholastic. Photos were submitted to the local newspaper reporting the results and attendance at the fair. (Photos may be included in journal or shown to your Supervising Professor when she visits your school.) Evaluation of Activities: Verbal feedback from children, administrators, teachers, and parents was positive (provide quotes or some other documentation). Twenty percent more books were purchased during this fair than last year s (provide figures). I learned that next year I need to change some procedures (explain which ones) to make the book fair progress more smoothly. From a survey I gave to teachers and parent volunteers I gained suggestions for improvements (What were they?). Some of the benefits for children were shown by (requests for books in book fair, enthusiasm, higher circulation after book fair, etc.). 36

37 Template and Sample Journal Entry for Interns (Use this template if you are NOT currently working in a librarian position) Intern: Supervising Librarian: Sue Smith April Sound Date of entry: January 10, 2013 Dates of work week: January 3 and 4; Wednesday and Thursday Hours worked for this entry: 4 hours from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Hours worked to date: 10 out of 130 AASL Standards: Name of Activity: 1.1 Knowledge of learners and learning Research Projects on Consumer Needs Objective of Activity: To provide aids that help learners collect information and data. Description of Activity: I worked with five students who were studying consumer needs. I instructed them in the use of the online catalog and showed them how to use available print resources and the online databases. I discussed the general resources in the reference collection, highlighting the tools that might be the most useful for their research. We did a number of online searches using the search terms consumer needs while noting other terms or keywords that may also result in relevant hits. (Note: Enclose copies of any teaching materials you used.) Evaluation of Activity: The English teacher had helped the students narrow their topics and instructed them on the format in which the research project should be completed. After speaking with him, it was agreed upon that I would teach them how to use the reference materials that would specifically provide the information needed. I thoroughly enjoyed this activity. I think I learned more about the tools we used than the students did. (Note: You would list the individual topics the students are assigned and which tools you taught.) Note: The narrative examples above for description and evaluation of an activity represent MINIMAL narration length. 37
