NoSweat Library Lesson Teacher Collaboration Short Form
School Librarians can keep a stack of this short form on the circulation desk as a quick way to get information from teachers for a collaborative lesson, especially when the teacher comes into the library with a request. Field info will transfer easily into the Library Lesson Planner. Download the 8.5×11 PDF of 2 cut-apart forms.
This handy little phone-app-shaped checklist guides students to parts of a book that will help them decide if the book is “right” for them. The PDF document has 4 cut-apart “apps” per sheet. Let my FREE video “How to Choose a Good Book“ on Vimeo or on YouTube explain how to use it!
