|The Best Teen Reads: 2010|
This is an extensive young adult literature resource handbook filled with booklists, author information, Web resources, and ideas for enriching your classroom or library program.
While this book is a very helpful listing of the resources that emerged for 2010, the information can be complemented with a seminar presented by Sharron L. McElmeel -- her extensive background, expansion of information about the books listed in the handbook, stories behind the stories, author notes, and information about using them in the classroom/library will provide an energetic look at great new books for teen readers. A full-day seminar from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.

school librarians are being pink slipped or not, it is always a very
wise policy to build the parentsâ€™ understanding of what the school
library does and how it helps every child in the school. This booklet,
a companion to earlier titles for administrators and teachers, provides
one-page messages directed at parents to examine the benefits of the
school library. It provides hundreds of tips on how to help build
readers, wise technology users, and information literates. With a CD or
book, each page can be duplicated as much as the librarian likes for
the parents of a single school. Great for newsletters, parent awareness
nights, mailings, workshops, and handouts to give visiting parents.
The 53 pages cover the following general topics: An introduction to
school libraries and the research done in each state, information
literacy, technology, reading, and organizational ideas.
Individual pages include topics such as:
Authors for Children: A Calendar -- Out-of-print
