Regardless of one’s political views, there seems to be consensus on one political reality: America is dangerously polarized. According to Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School in Connecticut, in an edWebinar sponsored by Mackin Educational Resources, “The future of democracy presents a case for the critical need for school librarians in every school.” They are valuable for students to ensure equitable access to quality inquiry instructional experiences for all learners, not just for the future of education but also for the future of democracy.
This session will include strategies to redress the “nothing you can say will convince me otherwise” mindset among young learners and highlight programs that empower students to feel politically empowered to become change makers.
In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala will present a case for the critical need for school librarians in every school, and the importance of equity in access to quality inquiry instructional experiences for all learners – not just for the future of education but for the future of democracy.
