21st century school with a library!

I have begun looking at “21st Century Schools” and those that have libraries and/or credentialed school librarians.  I’m happy to report that the Science Leadership Academy in Pennsylvania is one such school!  Paul Scaer is the Information Specialist/Librarian at slalib094sm.jpgthe school.  He says in an email: 

“We are following the ideas of School 2.0 and the philosophy of our principal, Chris Lehman, to make reading and project-oriented research a major part of all courses.  I’m using Edward Tufte’s ideas (see Beautiful Evidence) and working with students in collaboration with teachers to increase the writing and information fluency of our kids.”

Here is a picture of Paul in his library that he emailed me.  Very refreshing and forward thinking.  No doubt the kids in this school will have tremendous benefits from having a credentialed librarian and a library!   Here is a picture of the library!
