When working with a family for the first time what should you do first?
You should let them lead the conversation, listen and ask open-ended questions.
Subject: Library and Information Science
If a patron comes to you and needs help locating resources to use in a research paper on World War II, What follow-up questions would be needed in order to help them?
I would ask them what grade level they are, what type of resources can they use, (books only, websites, Journals, Etc.), and if there is anything specific they have to include like military tactics or concentration camps.
When thinking about literature that is introduced, typically, in High School what is one book you would replace and one you would keep and Why?
Across High Schools one thing is constant we are all given a list of books to read. Many of the books can be found on the curriculum, there are what I would call the old standards. For me, I would keep The Outsiders, while is book may appear dated it is a timeless tale of status, friendship, and growing up. I would take The Great Gatsby off the list. There are better books that will convey the messages found in this book. Classism is still alive but maybe they can find a book that is more up to date and touches on other isms more relevant to today.
