About my libraryOur Learning Resource Centre is spread across three campuses. In order to assist staff in locating books to support the PYP(www.ibo.org) framework, I have used tags, personal comments and reviews to link them to:
The Learner Profile: INQUIRERS, KNOWLEDGEABLE, THINKERS, COMMUNICATORS, PRINCIPLES, OPEN-MINDED, CARING, RISK-TAKERS, BALANCED, and REFLECTIVE.
The PYP Concepts: FORM, FUNCTION, CAUSATION, CHANGE, CONNECTION, PERSPECTIVE, RESPONSIBILITY, and REFLECTION.
The PYP Attitudes: APPRECIATION, COMMITMENT, CONFIDENCE, COOPERATION, CREATIVITY, CURIOSITY, EMPATHY, ENTHUSIASM, INDEPEDENCE, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, and TOLERANCE.
All of the books on this website are present on any one of the shelves of the LRCs at our school. In order to assist staff in locating the book without having to go to the OPAC, I have included a column with the Dewey Decimal number.
The main purpose of this site is to assist staff within our school; however it is also important to note,that this site can be accessed by a global community, so that I can share with collegues and other people with a passion for the use of literature in learning around the world.
Many of the reviews are my personal reflection on the book and how I see it connected to the PYP. If you feel that I have missed an important aspect of any these books, please let me know.
As this site develops you will notice more and more books will be reviewed by other members of our school; as I firmly believe that we are a community of learners and literature is an integral part of learning. Literature helps us all make personal, local and global connections to our understanding of the PYP and the world. A teacher librarian should not be seen as the only literature 'guru' within a school.
