How is your interaction with homeschoolers? Are you doing too much, not enough, not sure? Gina homeschooled for 10 years before becoming a librarian, and she still shakes in her boots when families come in this door.
This training session focuses on library services for homeschooled students within the framework of the K-12 population as a whole. In addition to discussing the sensitive topic of serving one student subgroup without alienating the others, shen will cover root issues of librarians' negative perceptions of homeschoolers, identifying behaviors that enhance negative perceptions, developing proactive services and policies, and building win-win relationships with all students and parents. 1 CE Credit
