The Teacher Librarian's Toolkit

I thought I would share this online Toolkit from the Ontario Library Assocation with you all, as a few TLs have already looked at it and found some good ideas. Most documents are available in two formats -pdf & Word - and readily adaptible to our own needs.
"Teacher-librarians can and do make a difference. There is a considerable body of documented evidence that proves that schools having a good school library and program have a positive impact on student achievement. Evidence-Based Practice is not complicated. It is a simple process of paying attention to what you do and keeping a record of how that helps teachers and students. As Ross Todd explains, Evidence-Based Practice is “knowing and showing how the school library programs helps students learn.” For more information on Evidence-Based Practice, please
